Get a Second Medical Opinion!

Medical Malpractice

When you get  sick, you go to the doctor and trust that he or she will properly diagnose and treat your ailment. However, doctors are human and as trusting as you may be of them, there is  always the risk that he or she may make a mistake. A mistake or misdiagnosis of a serious medical condition can have significant impacts on your life and your well-being.

If you are seriously ill, it is always important to get a second medical opinion. Although you may not think you can afford a second opinion, the price you could end up paying for your trusted physician’s errors could be more than you can afford.

Important Reasons to Always Get a Second Opinion

Below are some important reasons why you should always get a second medical opinion:

Compromised Health

A wrong or misinterpreted medical diagnosis can seriously damage your health, and ultimately your life. In some cases, a medical misdiagnosis is irreversible and can result in serious suffering, a diminished standard of life, or even death.

For instant, if you go to your doctor with a long-lasting cough, he may tell you that you have a cold and simply give you a cough syrup. You do not get a second opinion and just take the cough medicine, only to find out later that you have an advanced stage lung cancer that proper chemotherapy could have stopped the cancer from spreading.

Life Altering Impact

As a result of your physician’s misdiagnosis, you suffered additional medical injuries and required additional medical treatment. These additional conditions and treatments have left you in significant financial debt, which has impacted other aspects of your life. You also no longer trust your doctor and have even become skeptical of other medical professionals. You now must deal with emotional and physical hardships resulting from your additional injuries.

The bottom line is medical malpractice can significantly impact both the victim and their loved ones. This impact generally runs much deeper than what appears on the surface. You should never take chances with your health. Getting second opinions can even mean life and death in certain cases. It is important to protect yourself and your loved ones by insisting on a second opinion from an expert.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
