At Spiros Law, P.C. our Champaign wrong diagnosis lawyers are committed to serving the interests of patients like you and your loved ones.

Why Do I Need an Attorney?
Showing that you or someone you care for suffered injury as a result of misdiagnosis and non-diagnosis requires expert assistance. The variables and data involved in these cases can be difficult to organize into a coherent argument. As a result, many who try to litigate on their own do not get the results they desire. To be awarded the damages you legally deserve, it takes an expert to organize all of the facts in your case, apply those facts to the law, and then present the whole package to the opposing counsel, judge, and jury, if applicable.
An experienced medical malpractice attorney knows the law and has handled these cases before. An attorney also has the resources to research your claims, stay on top of legal precedent, and understand medical standards of practice. They are also able to investigate the opposing party and their practices. To recover the compensation you deserve after a missed or wrongful diagnosis, you need a medical malpractice attorney on your side.

Commonly Misdiagnosed or Non-diagnosed Health Issues
Some of the more commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked illnesses are:
- Heart attack
- Various psychological issues, including bipolar disorder
As a result, if you have a family history of these diseases or you feel symptoms of these you think are not being addressed, then it is possible the doctor is not diagnosing your symptoms correctly. It may be time to contact another doctor and an attorney to address your concerns. Spiros Law, P.C. has experience handling misdiagnosis claims involving all of these and other illnesses, so we can help you with your next steps.
If I suspect that I have a claim for misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, so what should I do?
Aside from seeking out appropriate medical care and treatment for the medical issue you should (or think you should) have been diagnosed with, you should also begin to gather evidence of the misdiagnosis. This includes medical visit bills, doctor summaries, and any documentation of your symptoms pre- and post-misdiagnosis or non-diagnosis. Contacting an attorney should also be one of your priorities, as the law in these claims can be difficult, and the statute of limitations is short. Receiving your new doctor’s diagnosis and notes may also be helpful to yourself and your attorney as you pursue a claim on the doctor who harmed you.
How long will a malpractice claim for misdiagnosis or non-diagnosis take to resolve?
The answer to this question is a little difficult. Due to every claim being different and every case involving such unique facts, there is no set timeline or average estimate that can be applied to what you may be facing. That said, there is, in most medical related claims, a two-year statute of limitations to file your claim. Contacting an attorney as soon as possible after you discover the misdiagnosis or non-diagnosis is critical – both to preserve your right to recover and to receive an accurate estimate of just how complex and time intensive your case will be.
