Sometimes errors by medical professionals and/or institutions result in a failure to diagnose a condition in a patient. The failure to diagnose a potentially fatal disease or condition can cause untold suffering in the patient and sometimes even death. At McIntyre Law in Oklahoma City, we have the resources and experience needed to take on hospitals and medical professionals’ insurance companies and the experts they use to try to avoid liability when they have not met the standard of care in diagnosing a medical condition like breast cancer, lung cancer, stroke or a heart attack. Our failure to diagnose lawyers have a proven history of effectively litigating these types of cases throughout Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and the state of Oklahoma, and are here to help you and your loved ones.
Negligence involving failure to diagnose typically occurs when medical professionals fail to follow the standard of care in treatment protocols and conducting the necessary diagnostic tests (blood, imaging or physical tests) that would detect certain disease processes such as cancer, heart conditions, meningitis, fractures or fetal distress. Failure to detect these conditions early can result in delayed treatment that severely diminishes one’s quality of life and sometimes even leads to wrongful death. We have unfortunately been contacted by clients with stage 4 cancer. If the cancer had been detected on a timely basis, those clients would still be with us today.
