A Few of the types of cases we have seen.
Cerebral Palsy is an injury to the brain that can be caused by lack of oxygen during birth. Sometimes this injury is preventable and due to Nurses and Doctors missing key pieces of information that might show that a newborn is in distress during labor. If this happens then it can result in lifelong injury.
Failure to Diagnose Infections:
Missing the signs of an infection most often do not result in long term injury. But they can. We have investigated cases where the infection lead to paralysis and brain injury. Both of these are very costly in the long run in terms of lost wages, income, cost of medical care and the impact it has on your life.
Misdiagnosis of cancer:
These types of cases most often involve the misreading of test results such as X-rays or pathology slides. Some common cases we see are Breast Cancer, Colon cancer, but other cancers can be misdiagnosed as well. These mistakes can delay treatment and reduce your chances for successfully fighting the cancer.
