Failure To Diagnose

When Medical Conditions Are Misdiagnosed Or Diagnosed Too Late

Any serious progressive condition must be detected early and treated promptly in order for the patient to have the best chance of recovery. Whether a radiologist misreads an MRI, a physician misinterprets lab results or an OB-GYN fails to recognize fetal distress, the results can be tragic.

I am Brian E. Clare, a Kentucky medical malpractice attorney who has 25 years of experience representing clients in Louisville and throughout the state. I have obtained multimillion-dollar results for clients. However, I take even more pride in the one-on-one attention and quality service I am able to provide. The frequent referrals I receive from other lawyers testify to both my skill and my commitment to clients.

Here are just a few types of cases I handle:

  • Failure to diagnose stroke: An ischemic stroke occurs when an artery leading to the brain is blocked, such as by a blood clot. If medical professionals do not recognize the symptoms in a timely manner, the victim can suffer permanent injury or death.
  • Failure to diagnose cancer: Whether you developed lung cancer by smoking or breast cancer due to a genetic predisposition, doctors have the responsibility to accurately and promptly diagnose the disease.
  • Failure to diagnose serious infections: In one case I handled, a bacterial blood infection that could have been cleared up with a week's worth of antibiotics was not diagnosed, lasted six months and ultimately resulted in the patient's death.
