Seattle Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Misdiagnoses and failure to diagnose an illness or injury are the primary causes for medical malpractice lawsuits.
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Misdiagnosing a heart attack or stroke
- Failure to identify a problem in pregnancy or childbirth
- Failure to order reasonable and appropriate diagnostic tests
- Failure to provide reasonable monitoring of a patient’s condition while in a hospital or nursing home
If a family member suffered heart, brain or organ injury from a misdiagnosis, or early death from cancer misdiagnoses because medical staff did not take reasonable actions, you may have a medical malpractice case. Contact Seattle personal injury attorney Joanne Werner, RN.
Do You Have a Case for Medical Malpractice?
Without talking to an experienced and knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer, you may not know if negligence was a factor in your case or was responsible for your family member’s untimely death. It requires careful and thorough review of the medical facts to determine if appropriate and reasonable standards of medical practice were followed.
In some cases, the fault lies not with the medical doctor but with the insurance company, HMO, or managed care program that disapproved requested diagnostic procedures or treatments.
With over 14 years of legal experience and more than 20 years of nursing experience,attorney Werner can review the facts of your case and help you plot a course for legal action if that is called for.
