How Orlando Failure to Diagnose Lawyers Can Make a Profound Difference
Failure to diagnose a serious medical condition is one of the most common forms of medical malpractice in Orlando and all of Florida.
Whether your mother missed an opportunity to go through chemotherapy to potentially save her from the cancer that eventually took her life; or a caregiver or diagnostician’s error led to unnecessary surgery and vast medical complications from that surgery, the Orlando failure to diagnose lawyers of Dellecker, Wilson, King, McKenna, Ruffier & Sos, LLP can help you understand your rights and the various legal mechanisms you can deploy to hold errant care givers responsible and obtain recovery to pay for ongoing medical care, rehabilitation, lost work time and multiple other costs.
Failure to Diagnose – Violation of the Hippocratic Oath?
Since ancient times, ethical physicians have sworn by a very simple principle: “First, do no harm.” This principle, known as the Hippocratic Oath, shows that doctors and other caregivers can easily do more harm than good if they act in a mindless fashion. Doctors who overprescribe medications or fail to diagnose a condition or surgical needs cause untold damage in the lives of patients. Unfortunately, unpacking precisely what went wrong in a diagnosis – who is responsible, why, and what ultimately resulted from that negligence – requires intense investigation, lots of resources, and often a long court struggle.
That’s why injury victims look to firms like DWKMR&S.

We have the skills, knowledge and wherewithal to do legal battle with big hospitals, insurance companies and caregiver organizations, and we also have experience in extremely complex failure to diagnose cases.
Crises Caused by Failure to Diagnose
The harm done by a diagnostic failure is often subtle but serious. If, for instance, a doctor fails to catch a warning sign of a disease or a chronic condition like cancer or diabetes, the patient may lose the opportunity to engage in certain easy, relatively cheap preventive measures, such as dietary changes, simple surgeries and medication therapies.
Patients also may not even realize that they have been victims of diagnostic mistakes. Often, patients and their families are so busy addressing day-to-day medical and logistical needs that they never examine the possibility that a misdiagnosis even took place.
