Getting assistance with your failure to diagnose claim

Failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing a patient is a serious form of medical malpractice. With the help of Attorney W. Scott Sonntag, medical malpractice victims in Maryland may be able to file a claim against their physician to recover medical expenses and other damages.

Diagnosing medical conditions and injuries is a critical part of a physician's job. Unfortunately, many physicians fail to diagnose or misdiagnose patients' conditions, causing them significant harm. A failure to diagnose can turn what was once a treatable condition into a condition so serious that it results in permanent disability or death.

Competent physicians will listen to their patients and carefully evaluate all their symptoms and potential medical diagnoses. Negligent physicians, however, may ignore or dismiss their patients concerns. Patients may be told that their symptoms are simply a normal part of the aging process or that they are imagining things. As a result, the negligent physician may discharge a patient early without ordering the proper tests and considering all possibilities.

Attorney Sonntag will thoroughly review cases and give his clients a realistic picture of what they can expect if they choose to move forward with a claim. Attorney Sonntag will collect evidence, contact experts and prepare strong arguments to support the case and help his clients attempt to recover the damages they deserve.
