Misdiagnosis Lawyers in Denver

Our Award-Winning Team Fights for Injured Patients Nationwide

One of the most common complaints of medical negligence involves the misdiagnosis of a medical condition. When a serious illness goes undetected because symptoms were mistakenly thought to be the result of something else, the result can be tragic. In many cases, a treatable illness may be neglected until it is too late, while time was spent giving the wrong treatment. Other times, patients may undergo harsh and dangerous treatments—only to learn they never had the condition they were being treated for.

At Denver Trial Lawyers, we are proud to provide skilled legal representation for those who have been misdiagnosed by a medical professional. We partner with medical experts and other professionals to build a powerful, compelling case and fight for maximum damages. If you have suffered unduly because of a misdiagnosis, you deserve full compensation—and the chance to hold negligent caregivers or facilities accountable.

Examples of Misdiagnosis

Misdiagnosis can happen because a doctor ignores your symptoms and requests and declines to provide a full examination and/or order tests. It can also be caused by faulty tests or mistakes in interpreting lab results. In some cases, a doctor will not think of a rare condition, or fail to recognize atypical symptoms. When we work with clients who were misdiagnosed, one of our top priorities is determining what went wrong, and why.

Some of the most common misdiagnoses are:

  • Cancers including breast, colon, melanoma, lung, and female genital tract
  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  • Appendicitis
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Fractures

Misdiagnosis occurs more commonly in the emergency room than in general practice, meaning the patients who suffer from its harms are often those with the greatest need. However, a misdiagnosis in any setting can cause severe complications and even cost patients their lives.

Filing a Misdiagnosis Claim

Medical negligence occurs when a medical professional fails to behave in a way someone in their position would be expected to. In some cases, their behavior is so egregious it is easy to pinpoint as malpractice. In others, the line is harder to draw.

You need an experienced legal firm on your side to ensure your doctor or the facility that employs them does not take advantage of this subjectivity to avoid consequences. We thoroughly investigate every claim we take. In medical malpractice cases, that means requesting patient medical records and reviewing them with the help of industry experts. Depending on the circumstances, we may determine your case could benefit from the testimony of a medical professional who can explain to a judge and jury why your doctor’s actions were inadequate. We can find a trusted doctor to explain what they believe the expected course of action would be in your case.

Misdiagnosis and other medical malpractice claims are highly technical and require a degree of knowledge many lawyers don’t have. If you are looking for the best representative, be sure to ask a law firm about their past experience in this field.
