No one deserves to be turned away from a clinic or emergency room when he or she is truly suffering from a medical condition. However, the consequences of a failure to diagnose a medical condition are not always the same. Some illnesses and injuries need to be treated as soon as possible to prevent major complications; when they are not correctly diagnosed, the results can be disastrous.
The failure to diagnose and treat a major condition can cause severe suffering for patients and their families. If you or someone you love has been harmed by a preventable medical error such as failure to diagnose, contact the Sheboygan medical malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at (920) 459-8000 to find out what your options are.
Some conditions will resolve on their own even if they are not diagnosed and treated by a medical professional. However, other conditions need quick professional treatment to avoid lasting disability or even death. These conditions include:
When one of these conditions strikes, there is no time for medical errors. A doctor who harms patients through preventable errors should be held accountable for the damage he or she has caused.
