Stockton Associated Disease Not Diagnosed Lawyer

Some medical conditions are risk factors or symptoms of another condition, while certain diseases just occur together without one having caused the other. Heart disease for example is typically paired with high cholesterol or diabetes. If your doctor tells you that you have one condition, he or she should be looking for the other conditions as well.

Any medical condition that usually occurs alongside another that is left undiagnosed is deemed an “associated disease not diagnosed.” These associated diseases are sometimes caught by another doctor, or at a later date, but if left undiagnosed, can lead to serious medical problems that may result in permanent injury or death.

Our Medical Malpractice Attorney Can Help

An associated disease left undiagnosed is considered medical malpractice. If you or your loved one has been the victim of an associated disease not diagnosed, please contact the law office of the Stockton Medical Malpractice Lawyer today.

It is the medical standard of care to test for and detect medical conditions that may be related. If a doctor fails to check for an associated disease of a confirmed medical condition, this doctor is guilty of medical malpractice. If tests conducted on you were faulty, inaccurate, or improperly administered, these are also legal grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

If you or your loved one was injured or passed away because of an associated disease not diagnosed, please contact our office to consult with the Stockton Medical Malpractice Lawyer today.
