Misdiagnosis of failure to diagnose a disease or infection

When you seek medical care for an illness or disease, you expect that your physician will listen to your concerns and perform all of the necessary tests to ensure that your diagnosis is correct. Unfortunately, when physicians overlook obvious symptoms or cut corners, it could result in serious injury and even death.

Sadly due to the systemic problems with North Carolina and the United State’s heathcare systems, patients with no insurance or little insurance often do not recieve the careful treatment that they deserve. When doctors, physican’s assistants, nurses, or other health care providers fail to take yours or a loved one’s condition seriously, it can lead to disaster.

If you have been injured due to a doctor’s negligence, you have a right to seek restitution. However, you don’t want to go up against the doctor’s insurance company without a skilled attorney by your side.

Mark Melrose and the legal team at Melrose Law will help you level the playing field. With more than 25 years of experience in medical malpractice, we have the skills necessary to go up against the multimillion-dollar insurance companies and get you the compensation you deserve.

Holding Negligent Physicians Accountable

Recent changes to North Carolina’s medical malpractice laws have made it very challenging for victims to recover damages. Additionally, the physician typically has a powerful insurance company on his or her side fighting to reduce or eliminate your compensation. However, it is not impossible to win these cases, as long as you have an experienced lawyer on your side.

We have handled a wide range of misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose cases, including:

  • Brain injury
  • Heart attacks
  • Aneurysm
  • Appendicitis
  • Infection
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Post operation infections

Our firm has the resources to bring in prominent medical experts to prove that the physician did not follow the standard of care when treating you, which subsequently caused your injuries. We will take every possible step to ensure that you get the maximum restitution you are entitled to receive under the law. Additionally, we will hold the negligent physician accountable and ensure that an accident like yours does not happen to someone else. Monetary awards are the only way to get the attention of the insurance companies and negligent hospitals and doctors, and these awards generally cause them to change their bad behavior.

It is no surprise that cases against doctors and hospital can be difficult. Not every failure to catch a condition is medical malpractice, but it is important that you speak to an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to see if there may be a claim for compensation for what happened to you or a family member.
