Medical Malpractice / Medical Misdiagnosis Attorneys

in Wilkes-Barre, PA

When you or a loved one is injured or suffers from a medical condition, you trust medical professionals to provide the necessary care. Unfortunately, medical errors do occur, and these mistakes can have severe and sometimes fatal consequences. If you suspect that you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice or misdiagnosis, hiring a lawyer who focuses on these cases is essential.

Medical malpractice may occur when a healthcare provider fails to provide appropriate treatment, makes a negligent mistake during a medical procedure, or fails to diagnose a medical condition. Medical misdiagnosis occurs when a healthcare provider diagnoses a patient with the wrong illness or fails to diagnose a condition altogether. Both medical malpractice and misdiagnosis can have devastating consequences, including serious injury, permanent disability, or even death.

Examples of medical malpractice might include surgical errors, medication errors, birth injuries, and misdiagnosis of severe conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and stroke. Misdiagnosis can be just as devastating and may include failure to diagnose cancer or other dangerous conditions.
