We rely on health care professionals to help us figure out what is wrong in addition to helping us stay healthy. However, when a medical misdiagnosis occurs the result is often devastating, it impacts your quality of life and it can even hasten your death. It is critical that you consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can help you when a misdiagnosis has occurred.

At the law office of Egan & Richgels, S.C., we have more than 30 years of experience attaining justice for medical malpractice victims. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for victims of negligence, including record-setting individual settlements of up to 10 million dollars. You can be confident that we can help you, too. Contact us today to speak with an experienced La Crosse misdiagnosis lawyer about your situation to see if you have a viable claim.

We are here to help answer all your questions concerning how to prove this type of claim and recover monetary damages. For 30 years, we have been helping people throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota who have been hurt, instead of helped, by doctors or other health care professionals. We can help you pursue any type of misdiagnosis claim such as:

  • Failure to diagnose spinal nerve injury, cancer, or detect any other type of disease/pathology
  • Improper interpretation of a lab test, an X-ray, PET scan, CAT scan or MRI by a radiologist
  • Not reporting a blood test or other lab finding result in a timely manner
  • Inaccurately taking down a medical history or failing to be comprehensive while questioning a patient
  • False positives or errors reading a mammogram or other pathology finding

Doctors and other health care providers (nurses, technicians) are supposed to have the proper expertise to prevent these types of errors. When medical professionals breach their duty of care to their patients, this can often have a devastating effect on the patient’s quality of life. For instance, failing to properly diagnose an illness or condition can lead to a delivering mother’s health being put in jeopardy and or a birth injury. The condition may be exacerbated when the proper diagnosis is delayed.

Our firm is equipped to handle wrongful death claims arising out of a misdiagnosis. We consult with experts who can give a qualified second opinion about how the treating physician failed to act properly. We will help you gather copies of your medical records of treatment as well as help you prove how the misdiagnosis affected your quality of life and the resulting monetary compensation you deserve.
