When it comes to a serious illness, the chances of recovery often depend on how quickly the illness was diagnosed and when treatment started. A delay of just minutes in diagnosing a stroke or heart attack can cause serious and lifelong health complications. A late diagnosis can be fatal for cancer patients.
Medical malpractice attorneys who understand failure to diagnose
The experienced Ohio medical malpractice attorneys at Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., are dedicated to helping people who have suffered or lost loved ones due to a late or missed diagnosis. With 50 years of experience, we can help you if you were diagnosed with the wrong condition, if the diagnosis was delayed, or if you have been harmed by another type of medical malpractice.
Misdiagnosis can lead to severe and permanent injuries
When you suspect that you or a loved one is having a stroke or heart attack, go to the emergency room immediately. Medical professionals should start treatment as soon as possible. Delays or failure to treat the condition can cause brain damage, other serious health complications or even death.
For cancer, early detection is among the most important factors for successful treatment. Your medical professionals should be aware of the early signs and symptoms of cancer. If they failed to diagnose cancer early, the chances of recovery may decrease as the cancer progresses.
