FAILURE TO DIAGNOSE
SOLUTIONS START HERE.
Doctors and medical professionals are only human, but their errors can cause catastrophic damage to your health and well being.
For the most part, doctors generally have a solid success rate, as only 1 in 20 patients is misdiagnosed. Unfortunately, misdiagnosis is serious. A misdiagnosis could mean a patient suffers through unnecessary treatments, or their illness goes untreated for too long, or in tragic cases, death.
If you believe you or a loved one has been misdiagnosed, do not wait and wonder. Speak with a legal team that has experience with failure to diagnose cases. At Loutos Law Firm, we will not settle for anything less than what you deserve.

How We Help
What To Do If You Think You’ve Been Misdiagnosed
Medical malpractice cases that involve a delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis happen more often than you may think. The only person who knows how you’re feeling is you. If you don’t think you’re getting better, or something feels off, then go with your gut. Either go back to your original doctor and let them know about the additional symptoms or issues, or visit a new doctor for a second opinion. The amount of time you have to bring a claim to court is known as the statute of limitations.The statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims generally lies between two to six years, depending on the state you reside in.
