An accurate diagnosis of a medical condition can have a huge impact on the course of treatment and a patient’s likelihood to get better or respond to medical care. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers have an obligation to do all they can to ensure a patient’s illness is correctly diagnosed from the outset, and must be held responsible when they fail to do so. The attorneys of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. act as advocates for misdiagnosis victims in Merrillville and throughout communities in Indiana and Illinois.
Commonly misdiagnosed medical conditions are:
- Heart attacks
- Psychological disorders
- Heart diseases
- Bacterial meningitis
Partial misdiagnoses also plague the medical field — it is not uncommon for one form of cancer to be mistaken for another, or for learning disabilities to be mistaken as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). When this occurs, a person’s true condition can be masked and left untreated for months or years, and doing so often causes an illness to worsen.Our services in misdiagnosis lawsuits
