According to the National Center for Policy Analysis, one report shows that errors involving a misdiagnosis result in a long-term injury or death 28 percent of the time. Still another report indicates that misdiagnoses occur at a rate between 10 and 20 percent. If a doctor or other medical professional fails to diagnose your condition correctly, you can end up receiving the wrong treatment or perhaps no treatment at all.

At The Law Offices of Goldfine & Bowles, P.C., we have decades of experience and provide families in Galesburg, Peoria and Bloomington with compassionate legal representation.

What Is A Misdiagnosis?

A misdiagnosis can happen at any stage during your medical treatment. Examples of a misdiagnosis include:

  • Being diagnosed with a condition that you do not actually have
  • Being diagnosed with the correct condition, but only after it has already progressed and become more serious
  • Displaying symptoms of a condition, but not being diagnosed as having it
  • Being diagnosed for a similar, but incorrect condition

You rely on your doctors' expertise when it comes to diagnosing an illness. When that trust is breached, you are left dealing with the physical, emotional and financial consequences.

Constructing A Solid Case

A successful malpractice claim will hinge on several factors. Our extensive experience in this area has helped us build a vast network of experts to aid us in constructing a solid case and getting you the maximum compensation available. The insurance companies that represent doctors and hospitals will not always offer you enough to cover the true cost of your injuries. We are prepared to negotiate with insurers on your behalf and take them to court if necessary.
