Misdiagnosis Lawyer in Denver, CO
Trust Award-Winning Denver Medical Malpractice Attorneys
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 end up being left until it is too late, while time was spent giving the wrong treatment.
While the idea that no one is perfect certainly does apply to doctors and other medical professionals, there are, unfortunately, many examples of cases where medical professionals make negligent misdiagnoses.

Examples of Misdiagnosis
Medical negligence occurs when a medical professional either behaves in a way that a reasonable member of the profession never would, or fails to behave in a way that any reasonable member of the profession would.
The fact is that in many cases it is difficult to know whether a medical professional’s behavior is negligent or not.
Examples of misdiagnosis could include the following:
- Failure to diagnose an impending stroke
- Failure to diagnose a heart attack
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Failure to diagnose fractures
- Failure to diagnose other medical problems
In most of these misdiagnosis cases the doctor will deny that he or she could have or should have made the correct diagnosis.
Our Denver medical malpractice attorneys engage the services of members of various medical professions and utilize our many consulting physicians in order to prove a breach of the standard of care in these types of cases.
