Doctors are expected to follow standard treatment protocols and maintain a standard of care when treating patients. When doctors fail to request blood tests, x-rays, scans, or other diagnostic procedures in the face of certain symptoms, they can be held liable for misdiagnoses that result in serious injury or death.
The law office of DiTrapano Barrett DiPiero McGinley & Simmons, PLLC, works closely with medical experts and investigators in determining what caused a medical misdiagnosis that resulted in serious injury to our client. Our West Virginia medical malpractice lawyers subpoena hospital staffing records, copies of diagnostic tests, medical charts, and video footage from an emergency room if available.
We interview nurses and attending staff in order to create a timeline involving when certain symptoms presented themselves and when a physician was made aware of them. Using medical expert witness testimony, we expose departures from standard of care and other acts of negligence.

The personal injury attorneys of DiTrapano Barrett DiPiero McGinley & Simmons, PLLC represent clients in regard to the following kinds of medical misdiagnoses:
When people are told they suffer from a certain condition or illness when in fact they don't, they often fail to receive the treatment they need on time, or worse, they receive unneeded treatment that is harmful to them. Misdiagnosed conditions that miss other serious health problems can lead to missed opportunities for a patient to get the treatment they need on time, and can lead to serious complications, and even death.
In each case, our attorneys have the experience and resources needed to meticulously review the actions of medical professionals, identify medical negligence, and hold those responsible legally and financially liable for their actions.
In order to quantify the cost of an injury or death associated with a medical misdiagnosis, our attorneys consult experienced medical economists and life care planners. Working with cost data collected by HMOs, the insurance industry, and the government, we can accurately project current and future costs associated with our client's injuries. Our office considers medical costs, loss of earnings, and loss in quality of life. We demand nothing less than a fair, equitable settlement or award proportional to the full financial impact of our client's condition.
