What types of failure to diagnose cases does attorney Reiter handle?

Legal cases in New York involving failing to diagnose a disease cover a broad range. In some instances, these cases overlap with delay in diagnosis cases. That’s because some doctors fail to identify the symptoms of serious or even fatal diseases after administering routine tests.

Other times, doctors and other medical professionals fail to diagnose a disease because they:

  • Fail to conduct routine medical tests
  • Misread laboratory results, X-rays and other routine medical tests

Often, many doctors fail to diagnose cancer. Several months or years can often make a big difference when it comes to aggressively treating cancer patients. That’s why it’s critical that doctors who fail to diagnose cancer be held accountable for their actions.

A failure to diagnose a condition can happen in any medical environment, from a family physician’s office to an emergency room. For example, an ER doctor who mistakes a heart attack for a gastro-intestinal problem might send the patient home and make what could be a fatal error. In other cases, someone might misread an X-ray and fail to diagnose an internal problem.
