When patients turn to a medical professional, they expect (and deserve) quality care. Sadly, far too many have experienced problems that never should have taken place. In San Bernardino, California, and across the nation, those who have dealt with medical professional negligence or experienced problems due to unacceptable medical care should not dismiss their experiences and at Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we fight hard for the rights of medical malpractice victims.
While any type of medical malpractice case is upsetting, a misdiagnosis can be particularly troubling. If you were misdiagnosed, you may be struggling with a number of challenges. For example, you could be struggling with a worsened medical condition because your doctor missed signs they should have noticed or otherwise failed to perform their job properly. Also, perhaps some of the suffering you are experiencing could have been minimized or even avoided altogether if the condition would have been properly diagnosed sooner. Furthermore, many victims of misdiagnosis receive unnecessary care, such as a surgery they did not need, and suffer harmful side effects.
If you have dealt with these issues personally or have any other experiences with misdiagnosis, you should do everything you can to ensure that negligent medical professionals aren’t let off the hook. Additionally, handling medical malpractice cases can be complicated, which is why you should only work with legal professionals who have solid experience and a strong commitment to every case they take on.
