Handling Misdiagnosis And Failure To Diagnose Cases
It’s difficult to know how many fatalities could be avoided if all illnesses and diseases were treated at their earliest stages. Some diseases are fatal regardless of how early they are detected. Other illnesses, however, are completely survivable when they are detected early enough. Still other illnesses lie somewhere in the middle of the spectrum.
Unfortunately, after losing a loved one, it can be difficult to know whether his or her death was preventable and caused by medical malpractice, or whether it was the result of a serious disease. Often, the answer isn’t immediately clear, and it takes an experienced attorney to determine what actually happened.
Thankfully, you don’t have to do that alone. When you contact my firm — The Law Office of Michelle Cohen Levy, P.A. — I can work with medical experts to determine whether your loved one’s death was caused by a delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose. I represent individuals in Fort Lauderdale and throughout Florida in a range of medical malpractice cases.
Cancer Or Malpractice: What Was The Actual Cause Of Death?
Working through a serious health condition is frightening. You trusted and relied on the doctor, and you expected him or her to do everything possible to help your loved one get better. However, a delayed diagnosis, prescribing the wrong medication or recommending bad treatment options can all contribute to an untimely death.
I help families find the closure they need after a loved one’s wrongful death or dealing with an unnecessarily advanced illness.
