Wisconsin Lawyers for Cases Involving Missed Diagnosis
We depend on trained health care professionals to resolve our medical issues as quickly and simply as possible. Yet, this reliance is often misplaced, as many patients suffer the consequences of missed diagnoses.
By some estimates, 12 million Americans will endure a missed diagnosis every single year.
The impact of a missed diagnosis can be life shattering – sometimes costly revision treatment is needed, other times the negligence results in alarming and avoidable health problems which should have been preemptively treated before becoming severe. In occasional scenarios, missed diagnoses can even lead to the death of the patient.
Missed diagnoses are a complex situation. You need an experienced law team by your side to have the best chance at justice. Contact the law offices of Gingras, Cates, and Wachs, and we’ll help you move through the legal mess and get the compensation you are due.
