We trust our doctors with our very lives. When our doctors tell us we are healthy, we shouldn’t have any reason to doubt them. But medical negligence may lead to an incorrect diagnosis or the failure to diagnose at all. This failure to diagnose and treat an illness could lead to serious complications, and possibly even death.
At Wilt & Klausing, PLLC, we hold negligent doctors and Kentucky medical providers accountable for their actions — or in this case, their failure to act. Our attorneys have friends and family who are in the medical profession, and we have experience defending doctors who face these claims. Our robust experience can be invaluable in defending your rights and securing a just outcome.
Do You Have A Claim Against Your Doctor?
Not every misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose is cause for a medical malpractice suit. Doctors have a certain level of duty and care they are expected to provide, and you only have a medical malpractice claim if you can prove they failed to meet those expectations and it resulted in harm to you.
Some examples that may result in a medical malpractice claim include:
- Your doctor did not conduct a vital test or improperly conducted a medical test that could have identified your illness.
- Your doctor may have delayed vital treatment, leading to further harm.
- Your symptoms were dismissed as minor or harmless, and no further investigation into the cause of those symptoms was conducted, leading to the worsening of your condition.
- You were recklessly misdiagnosed and treated for a different illness, which may have worsened the illness you actually have.
Every medical malpractice claim is different, and each should be evaluated with an experienced professional. We offer free initial consultations with our seasoned lawyers, so together we can determine the best course of action for you or your loved one.
