Misdiagnosis & Failure to Diagnose

Assisting people who have suffered from strokes, heart attacks and cancer

When it comes to medical treatment, the chances of recovery are often dependent upon how quickly the illness was diagnosed and treatment started. For those suffering from a stroke or heart attack, minutes of delay could mean serious and lifelong health complications. For cancer patients, a late diagnosis could be a death sentence.

Misdiagnosis can lead to severe and permanent injuries

If you suspect that you or a loved one is having a stroke or heart attack, the first thing to do is rush to the emergency room. Once there, it is critical to start treatment as soon as possible. Delayed or lack of treatment could result in brain damage, serious health complications or death. If detected early, many types of cancer have high rates of recovery, but those recovery rates decrease as the cancer progresses.

The attorneys at Elk & Elk have the experience, knowledge and resources to help. Working with a staff of health care professionals, we can determine whether a late or missed diagnosis is medical malpractice. If so, we are persuasive negotiators and skilled litigators who vigorously advocate for our clients.
