Medical Misdiagnosis Lawyers in Philadelphia

A Trusted Firm with Over Two Decades of Experience

The doctor-patient relationship is established on trust. As patients, we rely on the knowledge and careful attention of our doctor so that we can be certain his or her diagnoses are correct. If a medical condition goes unnoticed, it can escalate until it is life-threatening. Similarly, we want to trust that the medical teams taking care of our loved ones are thorough and detect any ailments in the early stages.

Keep Nursing Homes Accountable by Filing a Malpractice Lawsuit

When you entrust your loved one to a nursing home, you have the right to hold that institution to a high standard of care.

If you suspect that your loved one was misdiagnosed, you will need to prove three things:

  • There was an established relationship between the patient and the accused doctor
  • The doctor was not competent and was negligent in diagnosing the problem
  • The misdiagnosis caused injury to the client

You will also need to show that another doctor, under identical circumstances, would have been capable of correctly diagnosing the patient. The offending doctor may have included the diagnosis on a list and failed to follow through with tests and inspections, or omitted the diagnosis altogether. If another doctor can show that the diagnosis was detectable using appropriate tests, labs, or scans, you may have a case.
