Misdiagnosis/Incorrect Lab Reports

Misdiagnosis can occur based on an incorrect reading of an image study or biopsy.  Sometimes follow-up test can confirm the presence of absence of a condition, like cancer, and result in the patient receiving improper treatment.

However, sometimes a misdiagnosis occurs and an individual undergoes extensive medical treatment that is not necessary.  Perhaps worse, a poorly interpreted study can result in the delay or failure to diagnose a serious medical condition, allowing the disease to progress to a terminal stage.

If you have suffered from receiving a misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or lost a family member due to a failure to diagnose a serious medical condition call Egerton Law today to receive a free consultation.

Medical Malpractice

When you seek medical treatment from a doctor, there is a certain expectation of care—it’s reasonable to believe that professional caregivers with comparable credentials should each be able to offer a similar level of treatment under the same circumstances. On the rare occasion when a physician deviates from, fails to or is negligent in providing such a standard of care, the patient should be entitled to compensation in the form of medical malpractice recovery.

Most medical malpractice suits fall under one of several categories, each speaking to an atypical or unnecessary action or inaction of a physician that led to physical injury of the patient. Here at Egerton Law, our experienced attorneys deal with a variety of types of medical malpractice.

Car Accidents

An auto accident can cause serious, catastrophic, or even fatal injuries. If you have been hurt or lost a loved one in a car accident, you may be entitled to damages. Call Egerton Law to discuss your claim, and speak directly with one of our experienced and knowledgeable car accident lawyers.

Workers' Compensation

If you have been injured on the job, you need to talk to a lawyer about your rights and options. The doctor selected by your employer or insurance company is likely to be more interested in getting you back to work than getting you well.

 

Social Security Disability

Having a long term disability or a fatal condition can limit your ability to earn an income. However, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. If you are filing for Social Security Disability or appealing a Social Security Disability finding, call Egerton Law to discuss your claim.

Drug & Product Injuries

New medical devices and prescription drugs are introduced all the time. Some of these medical devices and drugs are not properly tested before entering the market, and some are approved without the proper patient warnings about potential injuries. Others have been on the market for many years before it is discovered that they are causing serious injuries to many individuals.

Premises Liability

Significant injuries can be caused when someone slips, trips, or falls. North Carolina negligence law and similar laws in other states may hold the property owner liable for the injuries incurred on his or her property. If you have been injured in a serious accident, while at a store, or on someone's property, call our premises liability attorneys at Egerton Law for a free consultation.
