Failure to Diagnose Attorneys Serving Pittsburgh
We know how to prove medical malpractice in Pennsylvania
“What if the doctor had caught it earlier?” is one of life’s biggest and most heart-wrenching “what if” questions. It is a question that gets repeatedly asked by people living with serious or terminal illnesses and by family members of those who have died unexpectedly of a serious illness.
Honest mistakes are made in the healthcare profession, just as in any profession. Unfortunately, doctors sometimes fail to diagnose serious illnesses due to inexcusable inattention or negligence. Sometimes, an emergency room physician or nurse fails to diagnose a major medical event such as a heart attack or stroke despite obvious warning signs.
