Misdiagnosis Or Delayed Diagnosis
Failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of a serious illness such as cancer or heart disease that could lead to pain and suffering, permanent disability and possibly even death are among the most serious errors hospitals and doctors can make. Many diseases can be cured or controlled with early detection and treatment. This chance for a cure can be lost if there is unnecessary delay caused by malpractice.
When you have suffered needless additional pain or lost hope of recovery due to a health care professional’s oversight, contact the Honolulu misdiagnosis lawyers of Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks and schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your potential medical malpractice lawsuit.
A Misdiagnosis Can Leave You Vulnerable
Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer, heart disease or other life-threatening illnesses at the earliest possible stage could result in them growing worse, leading to serious complications or even death. You may be entitled to damages for what this mistake has caused, including:
- Cost of medical treatment, hospitalization, long-term care, rehabilitation and hospitalization
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Other related damages
