Many of These Problems Can Be Prevented

Failure to diagnose

Many people are familiar with the adage about an early diagnosis being a better diagnosis. Because most diseases get worse the longer they are left untreated, the sooner a person can be treated, the better off they will be. If your loved one is struggling because of a delayed diagnosis or the failure to diagnose a condition such as cancer, an experienced San Antonio lawyer can help you hold the doctor accountable for their mistake.

At the Law Offices of Glenn W. Cunningham, we work with individuals throughout Texas to show the negative progression of the disease between when it should have been diagnosed and when it was actually diagnosed. To get the help you need, contact our office today.

Commonly Misdiagnosed Conditions

Misdiagnosis can happen with almost any medical condition, but it occurs most frequently with certain health problems, including:

  • Infection
  • Cancer
  • Meningitis
  • Stroke
  • Heart Attack
  • Blood Clot

Compromised Health Care Because of Delayed Diagnosis

Although it is impossible to know what the outcome of any medical diagnosis or treatment would be, we work with medical professionals to show the differences between the treatment options the person could have received and the options available because of the delayed diagnosis. Although we are not able to change the health of the person, we can help victims and their families receive financial compensation to account for:

  • Reduced life expectancy
  • Unnecessarily invasive surgery
  • Preventable death

Failure to Diagnose After Surgery

When patients are recovering from surgery, it is common for them to be in pain. However, in some situations, patients suffer more pain than they should, because the doctor nicked or cut something he or she should not have cut. Doctors have done an excellent job of publishing numerous articles that dismiss unnecessary pain as an incidental side effect or acceptable complication of surgery. In reality, doctors need to be held accountable for any incision that is not exactly where it is intended.
