Medical Misdiagnosis

Medical Misdiagnosis

The misdiagnosis of medical conditions can result in tragic injuries. In the misdiagnosis case of Mackey v. IrisariBordas & Bordas went to trial in a complex medical malpractice/wrongful death claim. A ruptured appendix and infection had gone unnoticed and untreated by the surgeon who had performed exploratory surgery. When the failure to appropriately diagnose the condition resulted in a wrongful death, Bordas & Bordas stepped in to help. The case went to trial and ultimately resulted in a $1.8 million verdict in favor of the plaintiff.

Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis

Advances in medical technology have made the early diagnosis of many diseases a possibility. When doctors fail to diagnosis a medical condition, diagnose the wrong condition or offer a delayed diagnosis, it may be a case of medical negligence.

We handle a wide range of misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis cases, including those involving the diagnosis of:

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Infection
  • Diabetes

In handling a misdiagnosis case, we carefully investigate all aspects of the treatment to identify when the error took place and which party or parties were responsible. We search for evidence in medical records, X-rays and other sources to build successful cases for our clients.

If you or a loved one has suffered due to misdiagnosis, our attorneys are here to help you pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered.
