Seattle Misdiagnosed Illness Lawyer

A health care provider’s failure to diagnose a medical condition can have severe consequences. Delays in treatment for cancer or heart problems result in unnecessary deaths.

It can be extremely difficult, however, to know whether a delayed or missed diagnosis of an illness was due to an error on the part of a physician or other medical provider. The experienced legal team at Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan knows how to review the medical records in these situations to determine whether the mistake is reason to bring a malpractice lawsuit against a negligent doctor or hospital.

Our law firm’s experience with the investigation and explanation of complex negligent misdiagnosis incidents can make the difference in whether or not you recover the compensation you deserve:

  • Cancer misdiagnosis
  • Failure to spot the signs of heart attack and other cardiac conditions
  • Misdiagnosis of aneurysm

  • Failure to identify the risk of pulmonary embolism

Whether your case involves a diagnosis errors or any other medical malpractice matter, we take most cases on a contingency fee basis: you do not pay attorney fees unless our lawyer obtains a recovery for you, either through negotiations or a judgment.
