Misdiagnosis

Cancer · Heart attack · Infection · Fracture

Misdiagnosis is a lost opportunity that can cost you your life. Early detection is often the key to getting proper treatment and recovering from serious illness or disease. Misdiagnosis can cause a patient to undergo unnecessary surgery, treatment or medication. Worse yet, it can rob the patient of the opportunity to get any treatment at the earliest stages of a disease or illness, thereby reducing rates of recovery and survival. At Ury & Moskow, our medical malpractice attorneys work to get fair and just compensation for those injured as a result of a failure to properly diagnose a treatable condition such as cancer, heart attack, or infection. We serve clients in Norwalk, Stamford, Bridgeport, New Haven, Hartford, Danbury, Waterbury and all of Connecticut, and in New York and Washington, DC, from offices in Fairfield, Connecticut, and Washington, DC. If you have suffered a loss due to a misdiagnosis, contact the Connecticut medical malpractice attorneys at Ury & Moskow today for a free consultation and case review.

Misdiagnosis is not always the result of negligence. But it can be, if your doctor fails to do a proper physical examination, to order diagnostic tests, or to refer you to a specialist; if a radiologist misreads films; or if a pathologist misreads tissue samples. When the failure to diagnose cancer or another condition correctly is the result of negligence, the patient is entitled to compensation for all of the losses caused by that mistake. Those damages can include the cost of medical care and treatment, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Our trial lawyers have recovered substantial verdicts and settlements through litigation and out-of-court negotiations for victims of misdiagnosis. Our attorneys work with nationally recognized medical experts to provide opinions and testimony in support of medical malpractice lawsuits for our Connecticut clients. Attorneys at Ury & Moskow, our Fairfield law firm, provide personal attention to our clients while applying legal sophistication to their cases, securing compensation after improper care or treatment by medical providers. We understand that it may be impossible to completely restore the damage and loss in these situations, but we vigorously pursue a resolution that will compensate you to the full extent available under the law.

Misdiagnosis claims, as with our other medical malpractice cases, are taken on a contingency basis, meaning there are no fees until we recover compensation for your injuries and you owe no attorney fees at all if you do not successfully recover on your claim.
