Personal Injury Advocates Serving Northwest Indiana

Misdiagnosis of an Illness or Injury

Medical Malpractice Lawyers Serving Patients in Northwest Indiana

An accurate diagnosis of a medical condition can have a considerable impact on the course of treatment and a patient’s likelihood to respond to medical care and recover. Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers have an obligation to do all they can to ensure a patient’s illness or injury is correctly diagnosed from the outset, and must be held responsible when they fail to do so.

The Northwest Indiana medical malpractice attorneys of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. act as advocates for misdiagnosis victims and their families. We take on cases involving such misdiagnosed conditions as:

  • Cancers
  • Strokes
  • Heart attacks
  • Infections
  • Psychological disorders
  • Heart diseases
  • Appendicitis
  • Bacterial meningitis

The Danger of a Partial Misdiagnosis

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, often causing the illness to worsen.

We are committed to seeing you receive the compensation you deserve for unnecessary pain and suffering as well as any other damages you are eligible to collect.
