A correct diagnosis is critical in receiving the appropriate treatment. When a healthcare professional gets it wrong, it can lead to harm. Diagnosis-related issues generally fall into a few categories:

  • Misdiagnosis: When a condition is incorrectly diagnosed as another
  • Delayed Diagnosis: When the correct diagnosis is made later than it should
  • Failure to Diagnose: When a condition is not diagnosed at all

Each of these scenarios can prevent you from getting the treatment you need, or they might lead to the wrong treatment altogether. If you feel like this reflects your experience, don't hesitate to give us a call.

Clear communication is vital in healthcare settings. When messages get mixed up between doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, consequences can be life-altering. Such miscommunications can lead to wrong medications being administered or vital signs being ignored.

At Personal Injury Legal Match, we recommend writing down any instances of miscommunication you've witnessed or experienced as part of your care. This documentation can be a crucial piece of evidence in your case. We're here to help piece that puzzle together.

Before undergoing any procedure, you have the right to be informed about the potential risks and to consent to its performance. Sometimes, medical professionals fail to obtain this informed consent, which can be considered a form of medical malpractice.

If you feel like you went into a procedure without adequate information and suffered as a result, that should not go unaddressed. Please, reach out to us. Holding a dialogue with our team can help ensure your rights are fully respected and pursued.

Hospitals are meant to be places of healing, but sometimes, preventable infections occur, complicating recovery or causing new illnesses. These Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) could potentially form the basis for a malpractice claim.
