Atlanta Misdiagnosis Attorney
The misdiagnosis of an illness can lead to devastating consequences for a patient. Misdiagnosis does not always mean the doctor reported nothing there when there was something there. An Atlanta medical malpractice attorney from the Tolson Firm has seen every type of misdiagnosis that can occur. This includes:
- Diagnosing you with a disease that you do not have, leading to expensive and unnecessary treatment that can actually harm you.
- Diagnosing the wrong ailment, leading to treatment that is unnecessary and will not address the actual problem. Untreated, the real problem will get worse.
- Stating there is “nothing wrong” when there is factually something very wrong. This leads to no treatment and the condition or illnesses worsens.
If this has happened to you or a loved one, it is a form of medical malpractice. You may have a case against the doctor or medical institution that misdiagnosed. Ms. Audrey Tolson, Esq., after nearly two decades of practicing law in Atlanta, founded our firm. Personally recruited by the famed Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., she served for 12 years at The Cochran Firm before opening her own practice.
