Misdiagnosis/Failure To Diagnose

This Didn't Have To Happen

It is an all-too-common scenario — a patient's symptoms suggest a grave illness or urgent condition, but he or she is diagnosed with something less serious. The underlying disease advances or a dire medical condition worsens when it should have been caught in the first place.

Thousands of patients die or suffer irreversible harm each year when doctors, radiologists and other medical professionals fail to diagnose or properly treat illnesses. The Pittsburgh medical malpractice lawyers of Rosen Louik & Perry, P.C., have a long record of holding negligent medical providers accountable in Western Pennsylvania achieving record-setting settlements and verdicts.

Diagnosis Errors May Constitute Medical Malpractice

We have won verdicts and settlements for cases resulting in death, brain damage, paralysis, organ failure, amputation and other serious harm:

  • Delayed diagnosis of cancer, resulting in lost opportunities to cure the disease or extend life
  • Undiagnosed heart attack or stroke
  • Failure to diagnose pulmonary embolisms
  • Failure to identify life-threatening infections or internal bleeding
  • Failure to diagnose or properly treat diabetes
  • Misdiagnosis leading to unnecessary surgery, radiation or chemo
  • Undiagnosed cerebral palsy, kidney disease and other conditions

Our experienced attorneys, aided by on-staff doctors, can decipher medical records and ask the right questions to uncover errors. Did the doctor fail to notice telltale symptoms or perform proper tests? Did the lab technicians make mistakes? Did the radiologist or physician misinterpret diagnostics such as a mammogram, CT scan, MRI, X-ray or EKG? Did the emergency room staff discharge a patient who should have been admitted? Sometime we uncover a "smoking gun" error, and other times a pattern of shortcuts, assumptions, miscommunications or deviations from the standard of care that prevented the correct diagnosis and treatment.
