Champaign Wrong Diagnosis Lawyers
In many ways, the most important part of the healthcare equation is the correct and thorough identification of a patient’s illness or injury. Without an accurate diagnosis, or with an outright failure to diagnose a person’s ailment, there is little hope of prescribing an appropriate course of treatment. As a consequence of a physician’s inability to properly assess the state of a patient’s health, a condition may continue to worsen or may evolve to affect other parts of the body. Diagnostic evaluations require the elimination of possible illnesses to draw a correct conclusion, and the failure to achieve this may constitute medical malpractice.
If you or your loved one has suffered adverse health consequences because a doctor failed to diagnose your illness or an underlying health condition, a civil lawsuit could help you obtain financial compensation for medical expenses and other considerations.

Frequently Missed Diagnoses
There is no question that reaching a correct diagnosis can be challenging. But the extensive training that doctors receive is intended to help them meet this challenge and others that arise. The stakes are simply too high to tolerate critical errors. Wrong diagnoses or missed diagnoses can cause a person to engage in behaviors and actions that they would not if they possessed accurate information about their health, and they can cost a patient valuable time. Some diagnoses that are frequently missed include:
- Heart attacks
- Breast, lung, and other forms of cancer
- Bipolar disorder and other serious mental health conditions
You deserve the opportunity to hold a negligent doctor accountable for the harm that has resulted from his or her failure to diagnose your illness. Contact the Champaign wrong diagnosis lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C., at (217) 328-2828 to discuss the facts of your case.
