Misdiagnosis

Misdiagnosis One of the first steps in your medical care is diagnosing your medical problem. Your doctor listens to your complaints, examines you and, frequently, orders one or more medical tests to diagnose your illness. When your doctor has collected the appropriate information, he or she formulates what is called a "differential diagnosis." That is a kind of "decision tree" of all of the conditions that you might have. Through observations and the test results, your doctor eliminates some of the diagnostic possibilities and settles on a diagnosis of your problem. The doctor then determines the appropriate treatment plan, based on that diagnosis. Experience and test interpretation play a big part in this determination.

Doctors occasionally misdiagnose their patient's conditions. Sometimes those misdiagnoses are medically unavoidable. Sometimes they are not. If a doctor does not perform a thorough examination or does not order the proper tests or negligently misinterprets test results, the results can be devastating. Misdiagnosis and treatment of the wrong condition can make a patient's condition worse than it was before he or she saw the doctor.

Misdiagnosis medical malpractice can happen in cases involving a variety of conditions. That is why we review each misdiagnosis case carefully with our attorney-physician and with other health care providers. If a doctor negligently misdiagnosed your condition and the results were significant, we aggressively seek fair compensation for those injuries.

My 15-year-old son suffered a life-altering closed head injury that left him disabled for life when he was injured in a truck accident. I went to Mike Miller for help. Mike and the law firm were the greatest people I have ever been around. Everything they did was excellent, above and beyond the call of duty. They were able to recover enough to let me leave my job and devote full time care for my son. To this day, they are more than happy to talk with me and take care of anything that comes up. J.M.

Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for. C.L.

A patient with a stroke was not transferred to a hospital capable of treating her. The client said, "We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad's integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great." C.M.

Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman's comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life. T.R.
