Joe Dunn is an advocate for victims of misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis in Illinois. Being diagnosed with cancer or other serious medical condition is something no one wants to experience. However, timely, accurate diagnosis can mean the difference between the ability to recover from the disease or the tumultuous decline of an untreatable condition. When doctor errors or other medical negligence cause a delayed diagnosis or a misdiagnosis of cancer or other serious condition, the matter should be investigated.
Whether tests are read inaccurately, inadequate testing is performed or symptoms are simply missed or neglected by the physician, the results are catastrophic. Joe Dunn will hold medical professionals accountable for providing substandard care which results in misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a disease or medical condition.
Doctors are expected to provide sufficient medical care. However, when that care falls below the accepted standard, Mike is here to help. To discuss the possibility of pursuing a medical malpractice claim for misdiagnosis, contact Joe Dunn.
We are experienced handling cases involving all types of cases involving misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose a condition, including:
- Failure to diagnose a problem resulting in unmanageable infection
- Failure to recognize signs of a heart attack or stroke in the ER
- Failure to perform adequate testing for a known problem
- Misreading tests, such as X-Rays, MRIs, CT scans or other imaging tests
- Misdiagnosis of breast cancer resulting in unnecessary (and painful) surgery
- Other medical negligence
Joe is prepared to take on well-known hospitals, clinics and medical institutions which had inadequate procedures in place and physicians who have acted unreasonably. Recognizing that medical providers have a reputation to protect, we understand the need to prepare a solid case on our client’s behalf.
We hold medical providers accountable for misdiagnosis and malpractice.
Delayed diagnosis of colon cancer, prostate cancer, skin cancer or breast cancer can result in the inability to treat a potentially curable condition. In most types of cancer the prognosis and cure rate is greatly increased if the cancer is caught in the early states. When cancer has progressed or metastasized, a patient’s chances of recovery are less. If doctor negligence has resulted in a death which could have been prevented, Joe will aggressively pursue rightful compensation in a claim for wrongful death.
