Many life-threatening illnesses can be successfully treated if diagnosed and treated at an early stage. Unfortunately, when a doctor fails to diagnose a serious health condition, the chances of a successful outcome may be much lower.
Gammon & Grange, P.C., has been handling misdiagnosis cases for more than three decades. The firm's attorneys understand the complexity of proving medical malpractice but are committed to your success. With offices in McLean and Leesburg, our lawyers represent victims of medical errors throughout northern Virginia and nationally. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
What Are Medical Errors?
Not every negative medical outcome is due to malpractice. For example, if you failed to discuss your symptoms with your doctor, he or she may not order appropriate tests to diagnose your illness. However, if the doctor failed to follow the appropriate diagnostic process, he or she may be guilty of malpractice.
The following are examples of medical malpractice:
- Failure to diagnose your condition despite observable symptoms
- Failure to order appropriate tests for your age and/or symptoms
- Failure to communicate lab test results
- Failure to correctly read lab test results
Our lawyers handle cases of misdiagnosed cancer, heart attack, appendicitis and other serious illnesses. While nothing can undo the damage caused by misdiagnosis, it is important that medical professionals are held accountable for errors and that you are fairly compensated.
