Failure to Diagnose Illness or Injury

When you have suffered an injury or illness, the timely diagnosis of your condition can make the difference between chronic pain and suffering and recovery, and even between life and death. The earlier a definitive diagnosis can be made, the sooner you can receive the treatment you need, and the less risk that your condition will become untreatable or unmanageable. Often, it’s simply a matter of conducting the appropriate tests or properly interpreting your symptoms. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, medical professionals often fail to exercise the requisite level of care to properly and timely diagnose your malady.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Can I bring a car accident lawsuit if I am undocumented?
Personal injury lawsuits can be brought without regard to your immigration status. Even if you are undocumented you have the right to sue for money damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
How Much Can I obtain from a Car Accident Settlement?
Several factors influence the amount you might obtain from a car accident settlement. The seriousness of your injury plays a significant role in determining this amount, as it affects your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and many other types of damages. The amount of insurance coverage available plays another significant part in the outcome of your settlement. Of course, a lawyer’s experience building personal injury cases, handling insurance companies, and negotiating fair settlements is yet another important consideration in this equation.
