Misdiagnosis Is A Major Cause Of Illness And Injury In The Midlands And Low Country

Timely and correct diagnosis of a serious medical condition is the most important factor in applying the appropriate treatment options, including the correct medication. Misdiagnosing or delaying tests to diagnose a life-threatening condition like cancer, stroke, or heart attack can result in serious injury and even death.

If you reside in South Carolina and are suffering or have lost a loved one due to a misdiagnosed medical condition that remained untreated for too long, you may have a legitimate claim for medical malpractice. In many cases, the claim will not necessarily be against your personal physician, but may be filed against your medical insurance provider who denied tests or a local diagnostics lab for misinterpreting your test results.
