Doctors Make Mistakes. Our Attorneys Make Things Right
When doctors fail to diagnose illnesses or mistake the symptoms of one illness for another, they put patients at great risk for serious, adverse conditions. Just ask a diagnosing error lawyer at the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone in Massachusetts or the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone & Morelli in Connecticut. They can tell you that these types of errors in judgment can lead to patients not receiving timely treatment. It can also result in serious diseases such as cancer or heart disease, which demand immediate attention to ensure the best possible outcome.
The longer an illness is left untreated, the greater the likelihood that serious consequences such as the need for high-risk surgery or even death may occur. Diagnosing errors can include:
- Delayed diagnosis of cancer
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Failure to monitor changes in a patient's progression of a misdiagnosed disease
- Failure to order a biopsy
- Failure to order necessary lab or medical tests
- Failure to properly analyze lab results
- Failure to refer to a specialist
- Misinterpretation of tests

Our law firms handle cases throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Failure to Diagnose Cancer Calls for an Experienced Attorney
The odds of beating cancer are much better when the disease is diagnosed in the early stages. Cancer can spread if it goes undetected, reducing a patient's chances of survival. This is why it's crucial for doctors to identify cancer promptly.
