Gulfport, MS Misdiagnosis Lawyer

Helping Victims of Delayed Diagnoses & Misdiagnoses in Mississippi

Individuals go to a doctor, hospital, urgent care, emergency room, or another healthcare facility to get treatment. Whether these people are suffering from an injury or an illness, the expectation is that the medical professional will recommend a sound course of treatment based on an accurate diagnosis. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a diagnosis to be delayed or incorrect altogether.

At Maggio | Thompson, LLP, our misdiagnosis attorneys in Gulfport have handled dozens of medical malpractice cases of varying complexity. We understand that our injured clients are frustrated and angered following a diagnosis error. Often, these errors lead to a delay in proper treatment or a worsening condition. By working with trusted medical professionals, we strive to gain a clear understanding of what should have been done, what went wrong, and how that caused you unnecessary suffering. We can negotiate with the liable party’s insurance carrier to help you fight to recover the maximum compensation possible in your situation.

How Diagnosis Errors Occur

Whether your misdiagnosis involved cancer, a head injury, or infection, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney who will fight on your behalf.

These medical errors can be caused by numerous factors, including:

  • Failure to examine the primary patient complaint
  • Improper staffing levels
  • Poorly trained staff
  • Defective diagnostic equipment
  • Improper use of diagnostic equipment
  • Failure to order proper diagnostic tests
  • Failure to properly read test results

How Hard Is It to Prove Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is a difficult legal concept because there is always the potential for complications, always a certain margin of error, and always a set of unavoidable risks in the medical profession. Legal professionals and statutory law, however, do recognize this fact.

No medical professional is required or expected to successfully treat every patient or to successfully cure every disease, ailment, and injury that they see. However, they must do their best to provide patients with adequate information and care. When a doctor fails to diagnose or incorrectly diagnoses a condition they should have recognized, you may be able to file a claim for malpractice.

As our lawyers focus on working closely with clients and on providing personal attention at all times, you can be confident that we will work your case on an individual basis. Regardless of the complexities involved in your claim, our firm has the experience and resources to clearly establish the evidence needed to demonstrate a medical professional’s failures and the determination and talent to see that they are held fully accountable and liable for the damages you incurred.

If you or a loved one suffered an incorrect, missed, or delayed diagnosis that led to a worsening condition, do not hesitate to contact our office.
