Strong Advocacy For People Injured By Delayed Diagnosis
Some diseases and injuries depend upon a timely diagnosis for proper medical treatment to be administered. Heart attacks, cancer, strokes, concussions and others have the potential to result in catastrophic or fatal injuries and illnesses to patients who are not properly diagnosed. A delayed diagnosis may be the result of medical malpractice if a doctor failed to perform up to the established medical standards.
At The Gori Law Firm, our attorneys help victims of medical malpractice recover compensation for their losses and work to hold doctors accountable for negligence.

How Did Your Injury Happen?
Doctors must consider all of the possible, reasonable causes for a set of symptoms and should test for those possibilities in a timely fashion. A delayed or late diagnosis frequently comes because a doctor fails to run the proper tests or interprets the tests incorrectly. Other reasons for a delayed diagnosis may include:
- Failure to consider a patient’s medical history
- Improper interpretation of test results and X-rays
- Failure to consider alternative diagnoses
- Failure to order or perform proper tests and diagnostic studies
- Incompetence or poor training
A delayed diagnosis can frequently result in serious injuries or can cause existing injuries to worsen. Our firm also represents the family members of those who have died because of a delayed diagnosis or other forms of medical malpractice in wrongful death claims.
