If a diagnosis is made correctly but in an untimely manner, the patient can still suffer injuries or complications stemming from a lack of treatment. Our experienced Orlando Medical Malpractice Team can help recover monetary compensation for your injuries, hospital bills, and emotional distress. In some cases, it may also be possible to seek punitive damages from the healthcare provider, particularly if the delayed diagnosis can be shown to have resulted from gross medical negligence.
Many medical conditions become increasingly worse as time goes on if they are not treated. For example, it is extremely important that a cancer diagnosis be made at the earliest possible stage in order to give the patient the best chance of survival.
