Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Rockford personal injury lawyers handle many different types of claims. One of the most common includes medical misdiagnosis. This is a commonly misunderstood, yet critically important area of the law. When a medical professional misdiagnosis a patient due to their own negligence, the patient suffers. This suffering can lead to many financial, emotional, and physical consequences. Fortunately, Zayed Law Offices can help recover compensation to help the injured. Doctors are entrusted with our lives. While many of us are comfortable and satisfied with our treatment, careless mistakes can be made resulting in a diminished quality of life. We’ll go over some of the most commonly made errors by physicians and the process of hiring a skilled, competent, and professional trial attorney.

What are some common types of misdiagnosed injuries and illnesses?

While there are limitless types of personal injury claims that can arise from a misdiagnosis, some are more common than others. The most commonly seen claims include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Cancer
  • Heart attacks and strokes
  • Chronic conditions such as MS, lupus, and thyroid
  • Mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder and depression

What are the legal requirements to file a lawsuit?

In order to successfully recover damages resulting from a medical provider’s negligence, several factors must be established and proven. First, a relationship between the medical provider and the patient must exist. This simply doesn’t mean that you consulted with the doctor regarding the matter. The doctor must have been presented with all the information regarding your initial concern and agreed to treat you based on having a clear understanding of the complaint. If the doctor immediately referred you to a specialist or another professional, the responsibility wasn’t assumed and would ultimately fall on the end provider or yourself for failing to follow the doctor’s instructions.

Next, it must be determined that the providers actions were indeed, negligent. If the medical professional acted differently in your situation than would doctors of a similar education and level of expertise, you may have experienced negligence. However, if the doctor exercised reasonable care and took actions according to the symptoms presented, this might put the matter to a grinding halt. Failure to disclose information or concealing medical information doesn’t fall within the providers scope of acting in a reasonable manner.

It must also be determined that the perceived negligence was the direct cause of the damages suffered. For example, if the actual damages were caused by another condition that may have exacerbated the symptoms experienced with the current injury, that wouldn’t establish a direct correlation between the injury and the perceived suffering that’s leading to a financial or other loss.

As previously mentioned, damages must exist and be provable to have a valid claim. Although medical bills and loss of income certainly establish damages, there’s many other types of damages that can result from an illness or injury. Loss of future wages, opportunity, and a diminished quality of life can also be compensating factors that would result in further damages. Punitive damages are also often awarded in many personal injury cases. A skilled attorney with Zayed Law Offices can explain the process in more detail and how damages are awarded.

Why do I need a personal injury attorney? Can’t I just represent myself in court?

Since medical malpractice litigation is highly complex, it’s inadvisable to represent yourself in such matters. Our experienced personal injury attorneys in Rockford can assess your case and determine an action plan. Often, personal injury cases can be handled on a contingency basis. If you were to take on the same responsibility, you’d have to put out a significant amount of money upfront. This includes court filing fees, medical record fees, expert witness fees, and more. You could spend thousands of dollars before ever even seeing a court room. Also consider that you’ll be facing fierce opposition by attorneys representing the other party involved. Leaving it up to chance could be a costly mistake that could leave you in even worse shape.
