South Carolina Wrong Diagnosis and Failure to Diagnose Lawyers

When visiting a health care professional, you expect them to have an extensive background in and knowledge of the medical field that allows them to diagnose ailments accurately. You place a good deal of faith in your doctors to care for you and your loved ones when it comes to injuries, diseases, and other medical emergencies. Doctors typically uphold their duty to the patient and provide the best care they can. However, if a doctor is not attentive to their patient or is otherwise negligent, they can misdiagnose or fail to diagnose a serious condition, which puts their patient at risk of even more serious injury or illness.

Mistakes of this kind are dangerous and unacceptable. Patients and their family members may suffer physically, emotionally, or financially due to a doctor’s negligence. You should not be held accountable for your doctor’s mistakes, and you have a legal right to fight back. The experienced South Carolina wrong diagnosis and failure to diagnose lawyers at Evans Moore, LLC are prepared to help you make your case.

Proving Wrong Diagnosis and Failure to Diagnose

When a doctor gives the wrong diagnosis or fails to diagnose their patient, it may constitute medical malpractice. Medical malpractice refers to any time a doctor’s negligence results in injury to the patient. A doctor’s behavior may be viewed as negligent if they do not provide the care that is reasonably expected. The scope of what may be considered malpractice is wide, but it is also complex to prove. In order to make a case for medical malpractice you must provide three pieces of information:

  • The doctor-patient relationship at the time of the misdiagnosis
  • The doctor’s error resulted from negligence
  • The patient suffered as a result of this negligence

A doctor’s negligence and patient’s suffering may manifest several different ways. The better the understanding you have of these topics, the more effectively you can make your malpractice case, since each of these elements are crucial to uncovering the doctor’s error.

God Bless James Moore & Scott Evans for the work they do – fighting for those that cannot speak for themselves, those that are pushed aside and thrown away, those that do not have a voice, those that are true victims.

After having the door shut in my face, countless times I met with James and Scott, who agreed to take the case to see what he could do. Each time , throughout the process I called the office, no matter who I spoke to or why I called, everyone made me feel like a valued client. I am grateful for the Evans Moore law firm and will recommend them to anyone who would find their representation useful.
