Experienced Trial Attorneys Fighting for the Injured

Savannah Medical Misdiagnosis Lawyers

Compassionate Counsel, Relentless Representation for Georgia Residents

When you visit a health care professional, they owe you a duty of care to properly diagnose any diseases or conditions under their expertise or, should they have reason to believe that your health is in danger by something beyond the scope of their practice, refer you to the appropriate medical professional. When they fall short in this regard, it can result in an aggravated condition that is much more difficult or, in the worst case, impossible to treat.

If this happened to you, then you may be eligible to file a claim against your negligent health care professional. Our medical misdiagnosis lawyers at Tate Law Group, LLC can discuss your case with you to determine your eligibility and whether a legal claim is the best course of action for you.

Types of Medical Misdiagnosis

Unfortunately, medical misdiagnosis happens more often than many people would like to think. In fact, just in the United States alone, 12 million people are impacted by it every single year; as a result, about 40,000 to 80,000 people die from related complications.

The most common types of misdiagnosis tend to fall into one of the following classes:

  • Incorrect/improper diagnosis: diagnosing a disease or condition as something other than it is
  • Missed diagnosis: failing to diagnose any disease or condition at all
  • Delayed/late diagnosis: diagnosing a disease or condition eventually but not in a timely manner

The failure to recognize complications that will aggravate the condition further also falls under the umbrella of misdiagnosis. Please note: The emergency room (ER) is a hot spot for misdiagnosis given its fast pace. Furthermore, studies have shown that women and people of color are particularly at risk of being misdiagnosed.

Commonly Misdiagnosed Diseases and Conditions

While any disease or condition can be misdiagnosed, the most common include the following:

  • Cancer
  • Celiac disease
  • Heart conditions
  • Depression
  • Stroke
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Multiple sclerosis

How to Establish Negligence in a Georgia Misdiagnosis Case

To win a medical misdiagnosis claim, you will need to prove that the attending health care professional was negligent under the following conditions:

  • You were under their care in a formal setting, meaning that you had a doctor-patient relationship;
  • They failed to provide care up to par with the medical industry standard (in other words, you would not be in the same position if you had been seen by another doctor); and
  • The resulting misdiagnosis led you to suffer further injury.

If a misdiagnosis claim is valid, a lawyer can work with you to substantiate your case with evidence. It is highly recommended to hire a legal professional to avoid being taken advantage of by a negligent party trying to deny any wrongdoing on their part. Moreover, legal professionals will fight to maximize your compensation, which could include recompense for pain and suffering, medical expenses, missed time from work and/or school, disability accommodations, and any other costs related to a misdiagnosis.
