Chicago Medical Misdiagnosis Lawyer
Individuals go to a doctor, hospital, urgent care, emergency room or other health care facility to get healthy. Whether these people are suffering from an injury or an illness, the expectation is that the medical professional will recommend a course of treatment based on an accurate diagnosis. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a diagnosis to be delayed or incorrect altogether.
At Woodruff Johnson & Palermo, our Chicago medical misdiagnosis attorneys have handled dozens of medical malpractice cases of varying complexity. We understand that our injured clients are frustrated and angered following a diagnosis error. Often, these errors lead to a delay in proper treatment or a worsening condition. By working with trusted medical professionals, we strive to gain a clear understanding about what should have been done, what went wrong, and how that caused you unnecessary suffering. We will negotiate with the liable party’s insurance carrier to ensure you recover the maximum compensation possible in your situation.
