NYC Medical Misdiagnosis
Bronx medical misdiagnosis lawyers who make things right
Doctors and other medical professionals have a responsibility to diagnose diseases and other medical conditions as soon as possible. That way, physicians and other health care workers can treat such problems right away.
Unfortunately, some medical professionals fail to do their job and do not diagnose a patient's health issue early. Other times, health care workers misdiagnose a disease and the patient receives the wrong, potentially harmful treatment. As a result, the wrong medications might be prescribed and the wrong surgical procedure might be performed.
The consequences of such mistakes can be devastating. That's why it's critical that you contact our law firm if you suspect that you or a loved one is a victim of medical misdiagnosis. Our Bronx medical misdiagnosis attorneys at Giampa Law have the knowledge and experience you need to get the compensation you deserve for your medical malpractice case.
What is medical misdiagnosis?
Medical misdiagnosis often means that doctors failed to diagnose a disease early. Other times, they miss the symptoms of a serious medical condition and there's a delay of diagnosis. Both scenarios can be potentially-life threatening, especially if the misdiagnosis or delay of diagnosis involves cancer or another illness that needs to be treated aggressively.
Medical misdiagnosis often occurs due to inexperienced doctors and other health care professionals who don't know how to recognize warning signs of a serious medical issue. Other times, physicians might be tired due to working long hours, especially resident physicians in teaching hospitals working long, grueling shifts.
Whatever the reason, it's important to take strong legal action as soon as possible. That's because you only have 2 ½ years under New York State's Statute of Limitations law as it applies to medical malpractice cases - and if there was a delay in learning that you were wrongly diagnosed, you may not even have that long. That's why we're eager to meet with you.
How we can help you
You need us handling your case because doctors almost always refuse to admit wrongdoing. And because they deny doing anything wrong, the insurance companies that represent them or their hospital will use that as an excuse to reduce or deny your claim altogether.
Insurance companies and doctors don't intimidate us. We know how to build a strong legal case against them and get you the money you rightfully deserve. Health problems caused by medical misdiagnosis can add up to thousands of dollars or even more over the course of your lifetime. And if you don't receive the compensation you deserve, your financial future could be in jeopardy.
As your attorney, we can negotiate with insurance companies for the compensation you need. And if they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court and file a lawsuit on your behalf. We will not rest until justice is served. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation right now.
