Helping Misdiagnosis Victims Pursue Damages

When feeling unwell, the first step is often to seek medical treatment. But what if your doctor fails to diagnose the problem? Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis can lead to poor, or even fatal, health outcomes. If your physician failed to identify your condition, you may be able to recover damages.

Delayed and misdiagnosis medical malpractice claims are complex. They generally involve detailed documentation and extensive medical knowledge. The attorneys of Silver & Kelmachter, LLP, have more than 30 years of experience taking on these complex medical malpractice claims and winning for their clients. We know how to build a strong case. Let us help you fight back against doctors, health care companies and their insurers.

Pairing Know-How With Results

Many serious conditions have overlapping symptoms. A doctor may diagnose the wrong condition or fail to diagnose a condition in time to treat it. A delayed or misdiagnosis can cause you to suffer considerable discomfort and waste money by treating the wrong problem. We have recovered damages for claims involving:

  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Mental health disorders
  • Medication side effects
  • Birth injuries
  • Childbirth complications

The health care system is notorious for long wait times and high treatment costs. After suffering a misdiagnosis, you may feel uneasy about seeking further treatment. A referral can streamline the administrative process and get you seen faster. We maintain professional relationships with many medical experts who can help determine what went wrong. These relationships also allow us to refer clients for health assessments and treatment.
