Failure to Diagnose Is Medical Malpractice

Alan Morton
Advocate for Justice/Trial Lawyer

http://www.MortonLawyers.com We trust doctors with our lives; however, sometimes physicians make mistakes that can be life-threatening. If a doctor failed to diagnose a medical condition that caused you worse injuries or the loss of a loved one, you should watch this short video to learn about your rights.

In worst case scenarios, a doctor’s mistake or failure to diagnose can result in the loss of life. Sadly, the wife of a client of the Morton Law Offices passed away because her doctor failed to tell her she had breast cancer following a mammogram. Because she was experiencing pain in her breast, she went back to the doctor six months later and was sent for another mammogram. This time an oncologist called to tell her that she had stage four breast cancer and was considered terminal. The oncologist advised her that the first mammogram revealed she had stage two breast cancer, which could have been treatable.

Because of a physician’s negligence and breach in duty of care, a woman lost her life and her husband’s life was shattered. Although her husband was able to file a claim for medical malpractice to recover for medical expenses, funeral costs and other damages, he now has to live a life without his wife by his side.
