Oppenheimer Firm

Chicago’s Nationally Recognized Civil Rights And Criminal Defense Firm

Holding Health Care Providers Accountable For Misdiagnosis

We place a lot of trust in medical professionals to take care of us when we are sick or hurt, especially when we need them to accurately diagnose us. A misdiagnosis, for any reason, can lead to compounding and disastrous consequences for a patient. When a misdiagnosis could have been avoided, the liable party needs to be held responsible for their reckless or negligent actions.

At The Oppenheimer Firm, we stand with patients whom the Illinois health care system has let down. Our goal is to stand up to big insurance and the legal teams for hospitals and health care providers to pursue the fair and full compensation our clients deserve in their medical malpractice claims.

The Perils Of Misdiagnosis

The longer an illness or injury goes without an accurate diagnosis, the longer the condition has to develop into something worse or even fatal. While not every instance of a misdiagnosis qualifies as malpractice, common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Misreading test results
  • Failing to run proper tests
  • Failing to communicate with patients about their condition
  • Lack of education or training to conduct proper tests
  • Taking too long to act on the results of the test

Our medical malpractice lawyer can review your case to confirm if your unique situation qualifies as an instance of medical malpractice. If it does, we will be by your side through every step of your claim to reduce the effort and time it takes to resolve it while increasing the compensation you receive for your misdiagnosis.

Begin Your Path to Recovery and Justice

No one should ever have to suffer from medical malpractice, but if it happens to you, do not go through the process of seeking compensation on your own. With our guidance, compassion and commitment, we can help you seek the outcome you deserve after your medical malpractice.

If you have suffered due to a misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis, it’s time to take action. Reach out to our Chicago attorney by calling us at 312-757-2232 or emailing us here to schedule your initial consultation today.
