Doctors are required under New York law to properly diagnose their patient’s illnesses. Most doctors have been trained for years to diagnose medical conditions presented to them. Unfortunately, many doctors rush their examinations in order to see the next patient. As a result, proper procedures for diagnosing are not implemented. Occasionally, a test which was supposed to be administered was not. Other times patients are allowed to return home although doctors equally trained in the same area would have asked the patient to remain in the hospital for further observation. The New York medical misdiagnosis attorneys at the Law Office of Risman & Risman P.C will try to repair the damage that has been inflicted on you by the carelessness of your doctors and hold doctors accountable for the repercussions of failing to diagnose or improper diagnosing of a critical medical condition.
More often than not, time is of the essence in a medical diagnosis being given. A medical condition that is diagnosed as soon as it is presented to a doctor may end up saving a patient’s life. A condition that remains undiagnosed because a doctor failed to thoroughly diagnose or mistook the condition for something which it was not, may ultimately result in a very serious and permanent injury, or in the worst case scenario, a fatality. The New York attorneys at the Law Office of Risman & Risman are equipped and trained to handle all types of medical misdiagnosis cases, including, but not limited to:
- Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose meningitis
- Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose cancer (esophagus cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer or colon cancer, among many others)
- Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose all types of brain injuries
Doctors may not be the only ones to blame in these cases. We have seen situations, in which the doctor ordered the proper tests, but the tests were conducted improperly or the lab mishandled samples, resulting in an inaccurate diagnosis. We will find out exactly what went wrong. We will find out who was responsible and hold that party responsible.
