Medical Malpractice Has Serious Repercussions For Those Involved

E. Dion Young tries the following types of medical malpractice cases:

Misdiagnosis

A medical misdiagnosis usually takes place in one of two ways; the condition is completely undiagnosed or the condition is incorrectly diagnosed. This is incredibly problematic, as a timely diagnosis is crucial in being able to effectively fight against many illnesses. If you or a loved one has experienced further injury or even a wrongful death as a result of a misdiagnosis, you are entitled to compensation to help cover medical bills, pain, suffering, and more.

Misdiagnosis happen most frequently in the emergency room. A misdiagnosis is not only one of the most common factors in medical malpractice cases, but it is also one of the most dangerous to the patient. While there are some instances where a misdiagnosis could have been avoided, more often than not, it is found to have been the result of negligence or incompetence on the part of the diagnosing physician.

Delayed Diagnosis

A delayed diagnosis usually falls into one of two categories: the proper diagnosis was missed by a doctor you relied upon and it was only later that another doctor diagnosed you properly, or the diagnosis was eventually made by your doctor, but not in a timely manner. Either of these delays could mean critical treatment time has been lost or there may no longer be an opportunity to properly treat the ailment.

A delayed diagnosis is not an innocent oversight. It is a medical error of massive proportions. When a doctor fails to diagnose your condition, they should be held accountable for their actions. Some of the common reasons why this happens include errors on medical charts, misread test results, lost paperwork, failure to order appropriate testing, and not referring the patient to a specialist.

Surgical Errors

E. Dion Young knows how to fight back and will get you a positive outcome as a result of your surgical errors lawsuit. Sometimes a serious injury is caused because a surgical procedure is flawed from the start – the doctor may have operated on the wrong body part or conducted a surgery that was unnecessary.

In other situations, surgical errors may be more complex. Many cases involve injuries to organs during surgery and the opposition may claim that these were the risks that were involved in the surgery and could not be avoided. We help prove otherwise.

Birth Injury

Brain damage, forceps damage, Erb’s Palsy, and Cerebral Palsy are all possible birth injuries that may occur due to the negligence of doctors and hospital workers.
