New York Medical Diagnostic Error Attorneys

Medical Diagnostic Error Attorneys

Diagnostic errors by medical professionals constitute the majority of medical malpractice claims in the United States. Diagnostic error usually falls under one of the following categories:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Delay in diagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis

Failure to diagnose a condition or a disease is usually the result of a failure to conduct the proper tests or failure to accurately assess or recognize a patient’s symptoms. Failing to diagnose can not only lead to the condition worsening but it can also lead to irreparable physical and psychological harm to the patient. A delay in diagnosis can lead to unnecessary pain and even death. For example, appendicitis, if diagnosed on time, can be treated quite routinely. However, a delay in this diagnosis could lead to death. A delay in the diagnosis of cancer could not only lead to a greater need for more and aggressive therapy and prolonged and intense suffering for the patient, but it could also lead to death.

The misdiagnosis, or incorrect diagnosis, of a medical condition could also lead to an improper course of treatment as well as the pain, suffering, and even death of a patient.

Cindy C.
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
