Minnesota Failure to Diagnose Attorney

Emergency rooms at hospitals can be a stressful and hectic place for both patients and staff.  When doctors and nurses work around the clock to care for the sick and injured, mistakes are made and this is unacceptable.  Failure to diagnose is one of the main mistakes made in an ER because the doctor does not diagnose the condition and the real reason behind your injury or illness.  This can cause improper treatment, additional pain and suffering and even death.

Tarshish Cody is Minnesota’s premier personal injury law firm with significant experience in medical malpractice, including failure to diagnose.  If you or someone you know is suffering from an injury or illness that was not diagnosed accurately in the ER, then you may be eligible for financial compensation.

When a doctor fails to diagnose an injury or illness in the emergency room, the consequences can be dire.  Chest pains, bleeding during pregnancy, a serious head injury or excessive vomiting all require urgent medical attention because it is associated with an underlying condition that must be treated.  When the doctor delays treatment or fails to treat the illness or injury, the condition will continue to worse and can cause life-threatening complications.

Complications

At Tarshish Cody, our personal injury attorneys are experienced in various cases including:

  • Undiagnosed stroke
  • Undiagnosed head injuries
  • Undiagnosed infection and poisoning
  • Heart-related conditions, including heart attacks
  • Pregnancy complications resulting in miscarriage, still birth or birthing injuries

Responsibility and Negligence

An Emergency Room doctors legal responsibility is to make an accurate diagnosis by performing as many tests needed, including x-rays, CT scans and blood tests.  When the ER is busy, it does not excuse a doctor from performing their job with adequate tests and follow-ups.  If an illness or injury is misdiagnosed, it can result in life threatening conditions.

If you are suffering from a doctor’s failure to diagnose your injury or illness, it is imperative that you seek legal advice because you could be entitled to financial compensation.
