If a medical professional misdiagnosed your condition, they may be responsible for the worsening of an actual condition. The liable doctor may also be responsible for unnecessary medical care and related damages. A Carrollton misdiagnosis lawyer from Underwood Law Office will seek money to cover all of your losses.
Our medical malpractice lawyers have decades of experience. We fight for those who suffer needlessly because of the negligence of others, including medical professionals.
Why You May Sue for Misdiagnosis, and What Damages You May Get in Carrollton
The journal StatPearls explains that a medical professional is liable if they do not offer the same level of care that another physician would have. When the medical professional’s failure to act reasonably causes harm, you can sue for damages.
Our team will assess the specific damages you have suffered because of a misdiagnosis. Your losses may include:
- Pain and suffering: A medical professional’s misdiagnosis may cause you to suffer symptoms longer than you should have to. Also, a doctor may have improperly recommended harmful treatments. Pain and suffering from a misdiagnosis can include pain, emotional distress, depression, and other symptoms.
- Lost income: When you are sick or injured, you may be unable to work or only able to work in a limited capacity. If a doctor diagnoses you properly, you may be able to heal and return to full working capacity. If a doctor misdiagnoses your condition, they may prevent you from healing and earning your usual income.
- Medical expenses: A doctor may have urged you to get various treatments that you did not need. The negligent party may be financially responsible for these expenses.
The diagnosis and treatment recommendations you received could affect your damages. If a doctor misdiagnosed a life-threatening condition, they may be responsible for the wrongful death of your loved one. In fatal misdiagnosis cases, additional damages may include:
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of parental guidance
- Permanent loss of financial support
