You Can Seek Compensation For A Misdiagnosis Or Delayed Diagnosis

Sometimes, a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis means it takes a little longer to get a medical condition under control. In other cases, it can mean the difference between life and death.

A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of cancer, for example, can allow the disease to spread to other organs in the body. Once the cancer metastasizes, the chances for effective treatment are drastically reduced. The patient may need extensive surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments that would not have been necessary had the doctor correctly diagnosed the cancer in a timely manner.

The attorneys at Russo, Rosalina & Co., LPA, represent clients who have suffered significant harm because of a misdiagnosis or wrong diagnosis. We pursue financial compensation for the patient or for family members of those who died a wrongful death because of a physician's error.

We Represent Clients In A Wide Range Of Cases

We represent clients who have been harmed by a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of many serious diseases, including:

  • Breast cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Brain cancer
  • Skin cancer (melanoma)
  • Prostate cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Meningitis
  • Pulmonary embolism

Sometimes the correct diagnosis comes too late — or not at all. A patient whose heart attack, stroke or pulmonary embolism is misdiagnosed may not get a second chance. These conditions can be fatal.
