Our Attorneys Understand the Consequences of a Misdiagnosis

Protecting Maryland residents whose healthcare providers failed to diagnose their illness correctly

Oftentimes the key to a faster recovery lies in the timeliness of your diagnosis. When a doctor fails to diagnose your illness, or misdiagnoses your illness as something else, you could face untold amounts of complications.

At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we’ve been helping victims of delayed diagnosis or misdiagnoses, as well as those whose doctors failed to diagnose their illnesses at all, obtain the compensation they’re entitled to receive for their pain and suffering. Since our inception in 1985, we’ve focused exclusively on the rights of personal injury and medical malpractice victims. When you’re suffering needlessly because a doctor failed to diagnose you correctly, you want the attorneys of Maryland’s premier personal injury law firm on your side.

Some misdiagnoses happen more often than others

In the nearly 30 year history of our law firm, we have seen incredibly tragic cases of patients whose doctors failed to diagnosis them correctly – or at all. These failures on behalf of the healthcare professionals often lead to more serious complications, where our clients’ conditions were exacerbated by not receiving the appropriate treatment. More often than not, a misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose case involves:

  • Cancer, including breast, prostate, lung, colorectal, cervical or testicular
  • Heart attacks
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Strokes
  • Lupus
  • Aortic dissection
  • Parkinson’s
  • Lyme’s disease
  • Infections

A misdiagnosis often leads to prescription errors as well, putting you in additional danger. In the worst possible circumstances, each of these illnesses can be fatal; under other extreme conditions, they may render the patient paralyzed or comatose. In every scenario, a failure to correctly diagnose a patient can cause needless suffering and discomfort, as well as additional medical bills and lost wages.
