Iowa Misdiagnosis Attorneys

Des Moines Delayed Diagnosis Lawyers

Many diseases and conditions that can be treated effectively if diagnosed early can have catastrophic outcomes when allowed to progress without intervention. We place our trust in doctors to recognize symptoms, order the right tests and take our health concerns seriously. When they fail to do so, the financial and personal consequences are often severe or fatal.

Suspected failures to diagnose cancer or other progressive, life-threatening conditions call for serious, thorough investigation. If you believe a physician or others involved in your medical treatment were negligent, we encourage you to put our firm's quarter century of medical malpractice to work on your behalf.

Analyzing All Aspects of Your Physician or Hospital Negligence Case

We are experienced Iowa misdiagnosis lawyers prepared to thoroughly evaluate your potential case involving:

  • A late diagnosis of advanced cancer, coronary artery disease or another progressive illness that proper testing and follow-up should have revealed much sooner
  • Serious emergency room errors, including failures to recognize stroke or heart attack risk, an infection such as appendicitis, a brain injury or other serious health issue
  • Failures to diagnose and properly deal with life-threatening post-surgical complications

Working with qualified independent physicians and other experts, our firm is prepared to deal with the most challenging and complex medical malpractice cases. It is critical in these situations to consider all circumstances and gather credible opinions that negligence occurred and a more timely diagnosis could have changed the outcome.

Are There Caps on My Recovery?

While reading about your case online, you may have come across something called tort reform. In fact, you were probably reading about tort reform if you read any articles about caps on damages.

At Galligan Reid PC, we want you to know that we vigorously fight these efforts by private corporations and insurance companies to deny you your full and just recovery. We consider their so-called tort reform efforts to be attempts to compromise your personal safety in order to pad their own profits. This kind of exchange is simply unconscionable.
