As a patient, you trust that you can rely on your doctor to provide the proper medical diagnosis and treatment for conditions that adversely affect your health. When a doctor or other medical professional fails to diagnose your illness properly, the consequences can be devastating to your physical and emotional health. The skilled trial attorneys at Ellis Law, P.C., have over 30 years of experience and are committed to helping you pursue justice against these parties.
Commonly Missed Conditions
The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that missed diagnoses are common and occur in 10 to 20 percent of all cases. While any condition has the potential to be misdiagnosed by a medical professional, there are some that occur more often than others. These include:
- Cancers, particularly breast, colon, prostate, lung and skin cancers
- Heart attacks
- Kidney and liver disease
- Allergic reactions
If a doctor failed to diagnose these or any other condition, we will work with you to hold the proper parties responsible. Contact one of our New York offices to speak with an experienced attorney about your situation.
Experienced And Knowledgeable
It is common for insurance companies to deny a claim or pay less money than what a victim may be entitled to. Our founder, Dennis Gerard Ellis, uses his prior experience defending insurance companies to help victims of medical mistakes receive the compensation that the law entitles them to. He knows the lengths to which insurers will go to avoid paying a claim, and he employs this knowledge to discount any arguments they may present.
There are many factors that may have played a role in your case. We can help you identify all parties involved, evaluate your medical records and assist you in holding those parties responsible for the harm you have suffered.
