Holding Doctors Accountable For Serious Errors
Many individuals who believe they are having a heart attack seek immediate medical attention in an emergency room. Unfortunately, today’s emergency rooms are packed with patients and are chaotic scenes.
For nearly 40 years, we at The Gori Law Firm have been representing clients who have been injured due to a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a heart attack or other disorders. We strive to help clients across Illinois and Missouri understand their right to file a lawsuit for medical malpractice.
Give us a call today to discuss your particular circumstances.
Failure To Diagnose Or Misdiagnosed Heart Attack
Heart attack victims may not get the medical attention they require — due to the stress on our medical resources — resulting in serious injury or death. Emergency room errors and hospital negligence can lead to a patient being treated for something other than a heart attack, while parts of the patient’s heart muscle are dying. It is important that you seek legal representation if you or a loved one has suffered due to negligence or the failure to properly diagnose a heart attack. This is a situation that should not be tolerated.
Failure To Diagnose Cancer
Though receiving a cancer diagnosis is no longer a death sentence, failing to properly and timely diagnose cancer can lead to the death of the patient when the correct diagnosis could have saved the person’s life. Our firm is committed to helping clients understand their rights when they have received the wrong diagnosis of breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer or another type of cancer. This can include diagnosis of the wrong type of cancer, diagnosis of cancer when the condition is actually not cancer and failure to diagnose cancer.
Misdiagnosis Of A Stroke
A possible stroke requires immediate attention from medical staff to see that the situation is properly addressed and treated. The wrong diagnosis in a situation where a patient is suffering from a stroke can lead to permanent injury, such as brain damage from lack of oxygen, along with the possible wrongful death of the patient.
