New York Failure to Diagnose Lawyers

Handling Cases Involving the Failure to Treat and Conduct Test for Serious Medical Issues

Diagnosing ailments is not a hit and miss procedure. Instead, the diagnostic process is highly systematized, and doctors have a duty to follow pre-existing standards of care. When doctors fail in their duty and fail to conduct needed tests, they can fail to diagnosis cancer and other diseases, often with catastrophic results.

The lawyers of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP, have practiced medical malpractice law in New York state for a combined 75 years and have handled dozens of injury cases involving the failure to conduct diagnostic tests and to properly and accurately diagnose ailments.

We draw on decades of experience and work with medical experts to assess cases and prove negligence on the part of physicians and other medical care providers. Our experience, knowledge and diligence have resulted in many millions of dollars in damages recovered for the victims of medical negligence.

A Recent Case Illustrates Our Effectiveness in Handling Failure to Diagnose Cases.

Our client wisely visited her doctor following numerous symptoms involving head pain and vision issues. She was referred to specialty care providers, who failed to diagnose meningioma/a brain tumor. As a result, she suffered bulging eyes, lightheadedness, visual changes, cranial facial pain and the need for the surgical implantation of an intrathecal fusion pump.

We filed suit against her primary and specialty care providers following an extensive investigation, in which we worked with a range of medical experts to strengthen the case. The defendant decided to settle the case as trial began for $1.5 million.
