Louisville Delayed Treatment Lawyers
When patients have to go to the hospital or doctor’s office because of a condition or sickness, they fully expect for the medical professionals to accurately find the problem and start treatment as soon as possible. Medical professionals have to go through many years of school to receive the proper training and education so they can provide their patients with the necessary care. Unfortunately, many of them make mistakes. One of these mistakes is delaying treatment because of a poor diagnosis or many other negligent actions.
If you or someone you know has suffered because treatment was not administered timely, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation to pay for damages. To discuss your case with a skilled and experienced attorney, contact the Louisville delayed treatment lawyers of Sampson Law Firm at 502-584-5050 today.
Delayed Treatment Causes and Consequences
There are many different circumstances that could lead to delayed treatment. An emergency room where patients are not seen promptly is a common and particularly troubling cause of delayed treatment. The failure to conduct a full battery of tests or to reach a correct conclusion can also lead a doctor to inadvertently delay proper treatment. These failures especially likely to result in catastrophic health effects for patients who are suffering with:
- Heart attacks or other cardiovascular conditions
- Certain types of cancer
