You Need Legal Help After A Delayed Diagnosis

A delay in diagnosing a serious illness or injury can have lasting and sometimes fatal consequences. When the delay is caused by medical negligence, affected patients and their families usually have legal recourse.

At the Chicago law firm of Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. our lawyers represent clients in medical malpractice cases arising from delayed diagnoses. We have obtained numerous jury verdicts and settlements that allowed people to receive compensation and damages for their expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses caused by malpractice. We have also filed wrongful death claims for the families of patients who died as a result of medical malpractice.

Fighting For Your And Your Loved One’s Rights

We have represented people injured because of delayed diagnoses of fetal distress or cancer as well as many other serious medical conditions.

Delays in diagnosing these conditions can mean delays in treatment — treatment that can be life-saving and radically change a patient’s prognosis. When treatment is not offered because of a delay in diagnosis, the outcome is often negative for patients and their families. Our attorneys work hard and have the resources that can help people recover after a delayed diagnosis. In the event that the delay caused the patient to die prematurely, our lawyers will fight for payment that can allow a family to begin to heal.

Let Us Begin Investigating Your Case

As trial lawyers, we never hesitate to take our clients’ cases before a jury whenever we believe the final settlement offer by our adversary is inadequate or unjust. Our law firm has the resources to determine when and how the physician or other medical provider failed to make the diagnosis at the correct time. We consult with experts and specialists to learn as much as we can about the medical condition and how the physician deviated from the accepted standard of care in delaying the diagnosis.
