Misdiagnosis Lawsuits: When Treatment Does More Harm than Good

A doctor's initial error and follow-up decisions about treatment can leave a patient disabled, disfigured, terminally ill or too frequently cause death. Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex has reviewed and litigated several cases for victims of a faulty medical diagnosis:

  • Unnecessary surgery such as a mastectomy or hysterectomy
  • Painful and needless radiation or chemotherapy
  • Organ damage from improper medications
  • Irreversible harm when deprived of the right medicine
  • Delayed treatment of a serious or terminal condition (e.g., a cancerous tumor misdiagnosed as a harmless cyst)

Our lawyers have been successful in demonstrating the negligence that led to a misdiagnosis: misreading of test results, ignoring suspicious symptoms, failure to perform a biopsy or order additional tests, or failing to get a second opinion or refer the patient to a specialist.

Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex, LLC is committed to full compensation for permanent injury or death. We are prepared to go all the way to trial if necessary to fight for our clients. Call at856-616-8080 for a consultation.
