      Has Your Doctor Misdiagnosed or Failed to Diagnose?

      Diagnostic errors are one of the leading causes of medical malpractice claims in the United States. Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose are severe issues in the medical profession that can have fatal consequences. A study by Johns Hopkins Medicine found that “diagnostic errors -not surgical mistakes or medication overdoses – accounted for the largest fraction of claims, the most severe patient harm, and the highest total of penalty payouts.”

      Types of Failure to Diagnose Cases

      Failure to diagnose cases can include a delay in diagnosis, a missed diagnosis, or a misdiagnosis. A doctor who fails to order the proper treatment or fails to investigate a patient’s symptoms further can miss vital signs that there is something wrong. It is essential that medical professionals are not only thoroughly trained but that they are also well-rested.

      Physicians who work long hours without adequate time off may be more inclined to make the wrong call, particularly in highly stressful environments like the Emergency Room. You should never have to pay for someone else’s mistake. An improper or missed diagnosis can cause years of additional medical treatments, or worse yet, can prove to be fatal.

      Commonly Misdiagnosed Conditions

      Cancer and heart attacks are two of the leading misdiagnosed conditions that can have deadly results. Failure to properly treat these conditions early may do irreparable harm. According to MDLinx, misdiagnoses occur in approximately “1 in every 20 patients every year.” Their research concludes that some of the most commonly misdiagnosed conditions include:

      • Stroke
      • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
      • Carpal tunnel syndrome vs. thoracic outlet syndrome
      • Systemic lupus erythematosus vs. rheumatoid arthritis
      • Lyme Disease
      • Multiple sclerosis

      New York Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

      According to New York’s Civil Practice Law & Rules Section 214-A, a claim for medical, dental, or podiatric malpractice must be filed within two years and six months. There is an exception to the general statute of limitations based on an action for negligent failure to diagnose cancer or a malignant tumor which extends it to:

      “(i) when the person knows or reasonably should have known of such alleged negligent act or omission and knows or reasonably should have known that such alleged negligent act or omission has caused injury, provided that such action shall be commenced no later than seven years from such alleged negligent act or omission, or (ii) the date of the last treatment where there is continuous treatment for such injury, illness or condition.”

      Hi Mr.John LeifertI just wanted to shoot you a quick note to thank you again for your services. My car accident, I was incredibly stressed the full dealing with insurance companies and sorting out what was my next step towards my injuries. Especially since it was my first time involved in any type of traffic accident, I was so lost and confused!Luckily I discovered your service at the perfect timing. You were able to make sense of the multiple demand letter requests, photo evidence, and medical documents that kept my case in track. You always make sure to follow up with me. I'm so happy we were able to receive a successful outcome. Good luck to you and your associates and thank you again.Miguel Perez

      When I needed to take on a leading US automaker, I turned to the White Plains law firm of Denlea & Carton and their commercial litigation team. They filed an action in Federal Court and after three years of hard fought litigation, they helped me to obtain a great result ! Not only for myself, but for consumers around the country. Jeff, Jim and everyone at the firm were superb. They communicated with me regularly, and ensured that I understood everything that was happening. I couldn’t be happier about my representation. If you need a firm that gets great results, and isn’t afraid to go up against large corporations, look no further than Denlea & Carton!

      I researched quite a few firms before deciding on Denlea & Carton, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. They surpassed my expectations in every respect. They were kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. They treated my case as if it was their own, and never backed down from the fight with the defendant until they obtained an incredible result for me. There is a difference between law firms, and I’m glad I took the time to realize it. I would recommend Jim and Jeff (and everyone else who helped me) without hesitation. They’re terrific!
