Helping Seek Compensation For Victims Of Misdiagnosis

Time is of the essence when it comes to the treatment of serious medical conditions. If a condition is not properly diagnosed or not diagnosed in a timely manner, valuable time is lost. The condition could progress to a stage at which the treatment is no longer effective. When a doctor misdiagnoses or fails to diagnose a medical condition that he or she should have caught and diagnosed properly, that doctor should be held accountable. At Brown Paindiris & Scott, we will do everything we can to make that happen.

What Type Of Medical Condition Does Your Claim Involve?

Since 1977, we have helped victims of misdiagnosis of a variety of medical conditions, including:

  • Misdiagnosis of cancer (breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer)
  • Misdiagnosis of aortic valve stenosis
  • Misdiagnosis of bacterial meningitis
  • Misdiagnosis of heart attack

Our experience allows us to handle even the most complex cases, such as those involving misdiagnosis of psychiatric conditions. When a psychiatrist fails to detect signs of depression, bipolar or suicidal behavior and provide the proper medications, that doctor can be held accountable, particularly in cases in which a victim warns the psychiatrist about a suicide attempt but the doctor fails to take measures to prevent that attempt.

Whether these misdiagnosis claims need to be taken to trial or be resolved through means such as mediation and arbitration, we have the experience to take the most appropriate path to success.

Claims Handled On A Contingency Basis

All misdiagnosis claims are handled on a contingency basis. You are not required to pay any attorney fees unless we get compensation for you.
