Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose a Medical Condition

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Medical Malpractice Lawyer

At James G. Gordon & Associates, we receive many inquiries about whether a doctor's misdiagnosis alone creates a claim for money damages. Courts have consistently looked beyond the negligence alleged to determine whether a misdiagnosis made a difference in the final medical treatment or outcome of the case.

Your medical malpractice lawsuit will need to establish a direct causation between the doctor's errors and the poor result. In addition, after proof of harm has been established, you will need to prove that the harm resulted in specifically identifiable injuries and damages.
