Qualified Greenville Medical Malpractice Attorneys
It is the responsibility of all doctors to provide the proper care that patient’s need, otherwise known as a duty of care. If a doctor fails to diagnose a medical condition or does not properly diagnose an illness or injury, it is considered an act or negligence.
At Harris Law Firm, PLLC, we recognize that when it comes to instances of misdiagnosis, the ramifications of such negligent actions can be life-altering. This is why we believe in fighting for the rights of our clients. For over 30 years, our top-rated Greenville injury lawyers have sought to protect the rights of the injured throughout Mississippi.

How Do You Prove Instances of Misdiagnosis?
In order to obtain financial help to cover the costs associated with the aftermath of diagnostic errors, the patient has to prove that three things occurred.
- That there was a pre-existing doctor-patient relationship
- That the doctor was negligent, providing improper treatment
- It was the actual incident of negligence that led to their injuries
The crux of most medical malpractice cases lies within proving the last two elements. Proving these to be true can be extremely difficult without the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who knows and understands how the laws operate in Mississippi.
Common Diagnostic Issues
Unfortunately, incorrect diagnosis happens more often than it should. Instances of misdiagnosis can result in devastating injuries, worsen preexisting conditions, or even result in a wrongful death.
Some commonly misdiagnosed conditions include:
- Heart attack
- Thyroid conditions
- Aortic dissection
If you believe that your condition could have been properly treated if it had been discovered in time by your physician, talk with our Greenville misdiagnosis lawyer.
