Miami Missed Diagnosis of Abscess Attorney
Helping Victims of Missed Diagnoses of Abscesses Throughout Florida
Abscesses can be extremely painful and dangerous, if left untreated. These pockets of pus within the body’s tissues can cause symptoms such as fever, swelling, fatigue, weight loss and other debilitating problems. Thankfully, most abscesses can be treated effectively with surgical drainage and antibiotics if they are diagnosed before they spread or rupture.
If they are not diagnosed and treated, abscesses can, however, lead to life-altering conditions, such as systemic infection, ruptures of adjacent tissue, inflamed blood vessels, abnormal organ function, muscle infections, prolonged fatigue and paralysis. Unfortunately, these adverse outcomes occur all too often because physicians miss diagnosing an abscess.
If you or a family member has been injured because an abscess was not diagnosed, you may be able to hold the negligent doctor accountable with a medical malpractice lawsuit. The experienced Miami medical malpractice attorneys of Boyers Law Group can help you in this endeavor. We are committed to helping you hold the responsible parties accountable for negligence and obtaining the substantial compensation you deserve for your medical expenses, lost income, pain, suffering, and other damages recoverable under Florida law.
Diagnosing an Abscess
Doctors should order the most effective tests for diagnosing a patient’s condition, but this is often not the case. If they haven’t conducted a thorough clinical evaluation, they might not order the appropriate radiologic test necessary to diagnose an abscess. Ultrasonography can detect some abscesses, but CT scans are more reliable, and MRIs are even more effective.
If doctors do not order an effective radiologic test or do not examine test results closely, they could entirely miss diagnosing an abscess. Without an accurate diagnosis and treatment, the infection can spread to other tissues, enter the bloodstream and cause tissue or organ damage. All of these conditions cause pain, physical impairment, fatigue and other serious physical problems.
Florida Medical Malpractice Lawsuits for Missed Diagnosis of Abscesses
If a physician failed to diagnose your abscess and you have been injured because of that failure, you may be able to file a Florida medical malpractice lawsuit to hold the negligent physician accountable and obtain the compensation you deserve.
In Florida, medical malpractice is defined as the failure of a health care provider to act in accordance with the accepted professional standard of care owed to you. When a doctor fails to act as a reasonably prudent medical provider of the same specialty would and causes a patient to suffer serious injury or wrongful death, the doctor may be held responsible for inflicting harm on his or her patients and the injured patient or family may be awarded compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain, suffering, and other damages recoverable under Florida law
