Failure to Report

Failure to Diagnosis a Medical Condition

A failure to diagnose a medical condition is often the basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit.  Whether it be a missed diagnosis of cancer, a fracture, a stroke, a heart attack, or a missed diagnosis in an emergency room, victims of malpractice are subject to a physician’s failure to appreciate medical symptoms.  Recently, we met a client whose husband presented at a local emergency room with shortness of breath, chest pain, and cold sweats.  Rather than admit him, the hospital simply told him to follow up with a family physician.  Unfortunately, he was not appropriately diagnosed and was sent home in the middle of a cardiac crisis.

A misdiagnosis does not always occur in an emergency room, however.  Often we meet people who had been complaining to their family doctor about something for a long time and, due to the failure of the doctor to follow-up and order testing to find out why the complaints were occurring, an underlying cancer or serious illness was not timely treated.

At Gill and Chamas, we endeavor to show how a healthcare provider’s inaction caused a medical condition to get worse, or go from treatable to untreatable.  With our combined expertise, we hold ourselves to the highest standards and strive to obtain the most qualified and credentialed experts to assist our clients to maximize their recovery, and level the playing field against the large carriers that insure the medical profession.  We match resources with resources, and have built a reputation as one of New Jersey’s premier medical malpractice law firm.
