When a doctor, surgeon, specialist, or any other trusted healthcare professional misdiagnoses an illness or disorder, the consequences can be devastating. When patients are misdiagnosed, they are unable to pursue correct treatments or benefit from the medications their conditions may require.
Aside from the more critical health complications that may result from a misdiagnosis, the financial impact can be considerable. As such, when healthcare professionals are negligent and misdiagnose a patient, they may be held financially accountable for that negligence. The skilled medical malpractice lawyers at Chris Mayo Law Firm will pursue any healthcare professional who has misdiagnosed a patient in the civil court system.
Illnesses that are Commonly Misdiagnosed
Sadly, medical professionals sometimes incorrectly diagnose an illness or condition. Among the most commonly misdiagnosed ailments are:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Lyme Disease
- Celiac Disease
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
When misdiagnosed, these diseases and syndromes will go untreated or ineffectively treated. As a result, the negative health effects associated with lack of treatment can be severe and life-threatening. The San Antonio lawyers at Chris Mayo Law Firm understand how devastating misdiagnosis can be and are committed to protecting the rights of individuals who have experienced this.
