Delayed diagnoses can cost a life

Failing to diagnose a disease or a dangerous condition in a timely fashion can result in devastating consequences for the patient. Early detection is a key component in the successful treatment of cancer and other life-threatening ailments. A delayed cancer diagnosis, for example, can give the disease time to metastasize, thus decreasing the likelihood of survival.

A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can stem from several negligent acts, such as:

  • Failure to perform prompt diagnostic tests
  • Test results are incorrectly interpreted
  • Procedure or test performed incorrectly
  • Misinterpreted X-rays
  • Failure to review lab reports or X-ray results
  • Overreliance on indirect means of diagnosis
  • A failure to refer a patient to the right specialist
  • A failure to maintain regular follow-up care

Unless physicians and doctors maintain a high index of suspicion and rule out diagnoses with certainty, cases will be missed, and patients put in danger.

When symptoms of myocardial infarction are misdiagnosed as digestive problems, and the patient is sent home with the wrong medication, the result can prove fatal. If signs of fetal distress go undetected during a long delivery, and the baby is deprived of oxygen, severe birth injuries can occur.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our Abbotsford personal injury lawyers fight for patients who have been unjustly harmed by medical mistakes. When you hire an experienced medical malpractice lawyer at our firm, there are no out-of-pocket costs to worry about, since we take on cases on a contingency-fee-basis.

Proving medical negligence

Proving that medical negligence occurred is typically complex and challenging.  After all, a negative outcome from a procedure, medication or surgery doesn’t always mean that errors were made. It is up to the plaintiff and their legal counsel to prove that the health care provider failed to perform to professional standards and that this action caused the patient to suffer.

If you are uncertain about your rights, it’s best to consult with Preszler Injury Lawyers as soon as possible. Our lawyers will provide a realistic evaluation of your situation, and if you are eligible to seek monetary compensation.

  • Medication errors
