Delayed Treatment

In many medical situations, timely treatment can make a crucial difference in patient outcomes. When the effects of an illness or injury are magnified by delayed treatment, people are often forced to miss work as larger medical bills pile up. There is no question that delayed treatment is often a form of medical malpractice.

If you have been the victim of a delayed diagnosis, a medical malpractice claim may be necessary to get compensation for lost work, costs of additional treatment, or equipment you need to get your life back on track. At the Steinberg Law Firm, our Charleston delayed diagnosis lawyer will help you get justice. For a free case review, give us a call at 843-720-2800.

CONSEQUENCES OF DELAYED TREATMENT
Medical malpractice injuries lead to nearly a quarter million deaths in the U.S. each year. Almost half of these fatalities happen due to errors or negligence in emergency rooms. Delayed treatment is one of the most common reasons, where even minutes of waiting can mean the difference between a full recovery and permanent injury or death.

Wait times in hospital emergency rooms across the country are increasing alarmingly, but delayed treatment is not limited to emergency room malpractice. When treatment is delayed, patients can suffer increasing complications and illnesses or injuries that take much longer to recover from. Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis often prevents timely or correct treatment in doctor’s offices and clinics as well.

The consequences of delayed diagnosis or treatment can lead to serious complications, including:

  • Lingering injury or illness
  • Increased complications
  • Permanent disability
  • Worsened health
  • Secondary infections
  • Death

WHAT TO DO AFTER DELAYED TREATMENT
If a delay in treatment or diagnosis leads to any of these situations, you do have legal options. A medical malpractice lawsuit may the best way to recover lost wages, pay for extended care or ballooning medical bills, or make needed accommodations to your home. In order to learn about your options, and all the legal requirements for a strong case, it is important to speak with an experienced Charleston delayed diagnosis lawyer.
