Decatur Medical Misdiagnosis Lawyers Fighting For Your Rights
Get the law firm with healthcare expertise
Doctors need to diagnose exactly what’s wrong with you or a loved one as early as possible. Otherwise, your illness or injury could get worse due to not being treated in time. Unfortunately, some doctors make mistakes when diagnosing what’s wrong. When they do, the consequences can be serious, including more serious injuries or illnesses, or even death in certain circumstances.
That’s why it’s critical that you take strong legal action if you or a family member has been harmed due to a diagnosing error. That’s why we want to meet with you at Kurle Justus, LLC, right away. Our Georgia medical misdiagnosis attorneys have years of experience handling complicated medical malpractice cases.
Our experience has taught us exactly what evidence to look for when investigating medical misdiagnosis cases. One of our attorneys even worked in the healthcare field for 10 years as a respiratory therapist before becoming a lawyer. As a result, we leave no stone unturned when researching these cases. You can count on us to work tirelessly for you.
What are common medical misdiagnosis cases?
Medical misdiagnosis cases can cover a wide range. Some of the most common cases we deal with at our law firm often involve:
- Delay in diagnosis
- Mistakes made involving laboratory tests, including:
- Testing the wrong test samples.
- Contaminating the test samples.
- Accidentally switching test results with another patient.
- Misreading test results, which may include:
- MRI tests
- Blood tests
- CT scans
- Failure to perform standard medical tests
- Misidentifying symptoms, resulting in the wrong treatment or no medical care
Whatever the circumstances of your medical misdiagnosis, our legal team can help you hold the medical professionals who made a mistake accountable for their actions.
What medical conditions are often misdiagnosed?
While any medical condition can be misdiagnosed, some conditions are often misdiagnosed more than others. These medical conditions include:
- Heart attack
- Pregnancy-related complications
- Birth injuries
Misdiagnosing such severe and often fatal medical conditions can have serious consequences. That’s why we want to meet with you and explain all the legal options available to you and your family in Georgia.
Why are medical misdiagnosis cases so complicated?
Medical misdiagnosis injuries or illnesses often turn out to be complicated legal cases. The reasons why include:
- The medical professional who misdiagnosed you or a family member denies doing anything wrong.
- The medical professional claims your injury or illness is unrelated to misdiagnosis error.
- Evidence related to your misdiagnosis error no longer exists or was intentionally destroyed.
- The medical professional’s insurance company denies your medical malpractice claim.
Because the consequences can often be so serious when it comes to misdiagnosis errors, medical professionals, or the hospitals they work for often hire entire teams of lawyers to defend their actions. They do this because the financial impact (medical bills, lost income, lost future income, etc.) can easily add up to thousands or even millions of dollars.
Some law firms avoid challenging cases. We thrive on them. That’s because we believe medical professionals should be held accountable for their actions. If they made a mistake, they should have to pay your medical bills and other related expenses.
It isn’t about the money. That’s not what drives us to work hard every single day. It’s about standing up for the rights of injury victims. It’s about making sure these mistakes don’t happen again. It’s about justice.
Get the help you deserve. Contact us, so you don’t have to suffer in silence.
Don’t wait to take legal action if you or a loved one has been harmed due to a diagnosing error. In Georgia, you only have two years from the date of your injury or illness to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. That deadline (known as the statute of limitations) might seem like a long time, but the longer you wait to take legal action, the harder it often becomes to find the facts that matter for your case.
Make the most of your opportunity for justice. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation with Kurle Justus, LLC.

We can meet with you in our Decatur office, in your hospital room, your home, virtually via video chat or wherever’s convenient for you.
