San Francisco Misdiagnosis Attorneys

Call (888) 831-8448 If You Suffered from a Misdiagnosis in California

Unfortunately, misdiagnosis is one of the most common medical mistakes. Most medical conditions are treated more effectively if they are diagnosed as early as possible. If a doctor misses the warning signs and symptoms, the consequences can be devastating to a patient. Additionally, if a doctor diagnoses an illness and prescribes treatment only to learn that the patient does not actually have that condition, it is possible that serious damage to one's health can occur.

If you or someone you love has been misdiagnosed, do not hesitate to speak with a San Francisco misdiagnosis lawyer from our firm right away. Victims of misdiagnosis often face additional medical costs, lost income, and preventable treatment for serious, life-threatening symptoms. You and your family do not have to beat this burden alone. Bostwick & Peterson understands what you are going through, and we may be able to assist you in seeking full compensation.

Call (888) 831-8448 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation with our misdiagnosis attorneys.

Why It's Important to Choose the Right Attorney

Medical malpractice cases involving misdiagnosis are both complicated and emotional for victims. Doctors and hospitals are protected by enormous insurance companies with teams of legal staff and agents that will attempt to settle the matter as cheaply as possible. While the doctors, hospital and insurance company will aggressively protect their own interests, make sure that you have a hard-hitting lawyer to aggressively protect your rights and interests.

Did Your Doctor Misdiagnose Cancer?

While we all worry about our health and serious issues such as heart disease or diabetes, there is no disease more frightening than cancer.

While science has made dramatic improvements in treating cancer, it is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. If a doctor fails to diagnose cancer, the consequences can be devastating. If either you or a member of your family has been diagnosed with cancer after it was initially missed by a doctor, you should speak with our firm as soon as possible to determine your legal options.

When cancer is diagnosed in a middle to later stage, rather than at an early stage, the costs of treatment and the severity of the condition increase dramatically. Families can suddenly find themselves struggling with tremendous financial burdens as they courageously fight this dreaded disease.

Bostwick & Peterson understands what you and your family are experiencing. Our firm accepts cases on a contingency basis which means you pay no fees unless we win. You and your family need to focus your attention on fighting cancer and winning; let our firm worry about fighting for your rights and winning.
