Texas Attorney Representing Victims Of Misdiagnosis Nationwide
The practice of medicine becomes more sophisticated every day. There are amazing diagnostic tools that were not available even a few years ago. However, physicians and other medical providers need to know how to interpret the results of newly introduced tests. The failure to properly interpret these results could lead to a misdiagnosis with devastating consequences.
At the Tinsman & Sciano, Inc., we fight for compensation for victims and their families who have been harmed due to medical misdiagnosis and other diagnostic errors.
Why Do Misdiagnoses Happen?
Misdiagnoses often occur in busy emergency rooms. The medical staff is overworked and tired, and the patients may be unable to describe their symptoms. A lack of insurance frequently complicates matters. In short, it is not just tests or lack of tests that result in misdiagnoses.
Medical mistakes also happen in other settings. A family practitioner may neglect to identify a rare illness. A general surgeon may not see a problem that would be evident to a specialist. Doctors inexperienced at reading X-rays may not identify issues that would be obvious to a radiologist.
Not knowing the patient is also a major factor in many misdiagnoses. Emergency room physicians perhaps have never seen the patient before. Military doctors often rotate through a base hospital and only see a patient once. This lack of continuity of care plays a significant role in many medical mistakes.
Obtaining Compensation For Injured Patients
Our law firm has helped people after misdiagnoses of cancer and heart disease. We have obtained compensation for people who have experienced undiagnosed brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.

We will fight to get you the full and fair compensation you need to move forward with your life.
