Diagnostic Error Attorneys Serving the Portland-Vancouver and SW Washington Area

At Jane Clark Legal, our experienced diagnostic error attorneys have over 35 years of experience in handling cases involving medical negligence resulting in injuries to patients or their family members. If you have suffered or lost a loved one due to a diagnostic error, our attorneys can provide you with the legal representation you need.

The Three Main Types of Diagnostic Error Cases

Delayed diagnosis cases: Our attorneys understand the consequences of a delayed diagnosis, which often leads to delayed medical treatment and worse outcomes or avoidable injuries. In some cases, a delayed diagnosis can even result in the death of a patient. Misdiagnosis cases: We have successfully handled numerous misdiagnosis cases where a failure to make the correct diagnosis based on symptoms, medical tests, imaging studies, or medical history has occurred. A misdiagnosis can result in patients receiving improper or delayed treatment for their actual condition. Failure to diagnose cases: Our attorneys have the expertise to handle cases where no diagnosis is made, leading to untreated medical conditions. Whether it involves a failure in imaging studies, medical tests, or physical examinations, we will fight for your rights to compensation.
