Medical technology has made it possible to diagnose and treat medical conditions that were once untreatable. Unfortunately, physicians do not always properly use the diagnostic tools available to them, or follow up when warning signs are present. The result of misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can have devastating consequences for patients.

With more than 40 years of experience, attorney John A. Caputo is prepared to stand up for your rights in this critical legal matter.
Uncovering Evidence Of Misdiagnosis
Misdiagnosis can take place in a broad range of circumstances, from the doctor's office, to the radiology lab to the emergency room. It is often a case of a misread test or the failure to follow up with additional tests when warning signs are present.
We work with leading medical experts who help us understand where the diagnostic process broke down and how misdiagnosis contributed to the sufferings and harm of a patient.
Failure to diagnose can lead to the worsening of an illness, unnecessary additional medical treatment and even wrongful death. If you or a loved one has suffered due to misdiagnosis, we are here to help you pursue fair and just compensation for the losses you have suffered.
