Chicago Lawyer For Failure To Diagnose Liver Failure

Attorney Paul Heinrich has almost 30 years of experience and has secured numerous verdicts and settlements for his clients.

Timely Diagnosis Can Be A Matter Of Life And Death
Symptoms of liver failure include lethargy, nausea, weight loss, jaundice and abdominal pain and swelling. When warning signs are present, doctors should order additional tests or refer the patient to a gastroenterologist. When doctors miss warning signs, or diagnose the patient with a more common but far less dangerous ailment such as indigestion, the results can be tragic.
Timely diagnosis is crucial in the case of liver failure. Lost time can turn an otherwise treatable disease into a terminal one. For patients, a doctor's failure to diagnose can result in untold pain and suffering, additional medical treatment, and other hardships. One of the main sources of hope for a liver failure patient is obtaining a healthy organ through the United Network for Organ Sharing. A delay in diagnosis can nullify this option, as the waiting list is long and every day counts.
Attorney Paul Heinrich is well-versed in the protocols for liver failure diagnosis and adept at identifying evidence of malpractice in these cases. Our law firm has the experience and resources to represent clients in cases in which the misdiagnosis of liver cancer has led to tragic medical setbacks and wrongful death.
