Illinois Attorneys Handling Delayed Medical Diagnosis Claims

Cancer is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed diseases. When some cancers like breast cancer and melanoma (skin cancer) are properly diagnosed in a timely manner, the prognosis can be quite good.

When the warning signs are present and the doctor fails to diagnose cancer or misdiagnoses it, the patient’s condition can worsen and result in much more extensive treatment, prolonged pain and suffering and even wrongful death.

Heart attacks and strokes are among other conditions that are commonly misdiagnosed. The following are brief summaries of several cases involving medical misdiagnosis that we have resolved for past clients:

  • $4,500,000 settlement for a baby who suffered brain damage resulting from misdiagnosed spinal meningitis
  • $1,950,000 settlement for the wife and three children of a cancer patient who died due to the failure to diagnose and treat the condition
  • $875,000 verdict against a surgeon for the failure to properly diagnose and remove an acoustic neuroma (intracranial tumor)

These cases can be difficult to prove without the help of medical experts. At Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., we work with an expansive network of professionals, including health care specialists, in order to prove medical malpractice cases and to obtain the maximum compensation available for our clients.
