Doctors, surgeons, and their patients know that not every surgery is successful. Often there is a risk that complications may occur during or after certain procedures. However, some surgical complications can be caused by negligence. If a medical professional made a surgical error that caused unnecessary complications, he or she can be held responsible for medical malpractice. Common examples of surgical complications and errors include:

  • Surgeons operating on the wrong area of the body

  • Performing the wrong surgery

  • Performing the surgery on the wrong patient

  • Performing the surgery incorrectly

  • Performing surgery when there were other options

  • Causing damage that was not explained to the patient before the surgery

At The Law Firm of M. Paul Fischer, P.C. we are dedicated to helping patients who have been affected by the negligence of a medical professional. Many of the claims we file result from a failure to diagnose, which is when a medical provider doesn’t detect a condition before serious or fatal consequences develop. When the failure to diagnose is due to the negligence of the healthcare provider, a medical malpractice claim might be appropriate.

A misdiagnosis of a disease or condition can lead to devastating results. For instance, a delay in cancer treatment because the doctor first misdiagnosed the disease may affect your treatment options, as well as your survival chances. In many cases, early detection is the key to a successful recovery. If the medical professional doesn’t diagnose the condition correctly, it could become a fatal error.

We are experienced in medical negligence relating to diagnosis, and we can help you determine whether a misdiagnosis has occurred. We have the knowledge to provide you with a thorough analysis of your potential claim. Misdiagnosis is not always medical malpractice, but it might be. It is important that you protect your rights and find out.

If someone has been harmed by the negligence of a treating doctor or another medical professional because he or she did not diagnose a serious condition at an early stage, contact our office to discuss the possibility that you have a claim.
