Tallahassee Delayed Diagnosis Lawyers
When A Doctor’s Inattention Or Indecision Causes You Serious Harm
We entrust our doctors with our lives and the lives of our loved ones. However, when a doctor fails to diagnose a disease properly, or the diagnosis is delayed until it is too late to solve the problem, the results are frequently catastrophic. If you or a loved one has suffered because of a missed or delayed diagnosis, contact our Tallahassee attorneys.
Hinkle & Foran is well-known throughout Florida for bringing catastrophic medical malpractice cases to a successful resolution. We have an extensive list of verdicts and settlements. More importantly, we are a small firm, offering quality service and personal contact while also having the resources to see your case through to the end.
When Is A Mistake Considered Negligence?
Misdiagnosis is more common than many people think. Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in this country. Often we find important lab records, x-ray finding or patient complaints that are ignored or misapplied. In other cases doctors have dilly-dallied and delayed when time was of the essence!
Our lawyers will thoroughly review your case and work with expert physicians to uncover missed signals and indications of your true diagnosis that the doctor overlooked. We have the experience and the knowledge to take on the insurance companies and the medical establishment on your behalf.
Our firm has experience with cases involving these and many other forms of misdiagnosis:
- Ischemic stroke
- Heart attack
- Testicular torsion
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pulmonary embolism
Although 90 percent of our cases settle, we prepare every case as if we are going to trial. Only by preparing for trial can we force the other side into a fair settlement. The insurance companies know we are experienced trial lawyers and will take your case as far as necessary to get a fair result.
You Don’t Have To Fight The Medical Establishment Alone
All cases are taken on a contingency basis, so you pay nothing unless your case is successfully resolved.
