Misdiagnosis/Delayed Diagnosis

Failure To Diagnose Serious Health Conditions May Constitute Malpractice

Many medical conditions must be diagnosed promptly and treated immediately in order for the patient to have the best chance of recovery. When a doctor, radiologist or other medical provider fails to accurately diagnose the condition, precious time is lost, and the patient may suffer needless pain, expense or even wrongful death.

At the Louisiana law firm of Mark W. Smith & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we have decades of experience fighting for patients and their families who have been harmed by medical negligence. Whether a doctor misdiagnosed a tumor as benign instead of malignant or failed to notice obvious signs of a dangerous heart condition, our attorneys are here to advise and represent you.
