When an injured worker gets misdiagnosed

Cases of medical malpractice can include workers comp cases wherein the injured person is misdiagnosed. This can be problematic as the true injury/sickness can progress while being untreated, and if something is misdiagnosed and not treated for any length of time, it can amount to more serious problems developing, perhaps even permanent damage for the injured party. This can, in turn, disrupt a person’s life as they will eventually have to take more time off of work to treat the actual problem, and it can also be an issue when dealing with things like statutes of limitation, already-settled workers compensation cases, and more. In the event that this happens to you, you will need to contact a medical malpractice lawyer, preferably one who also has experience with workers compensation cases, to help you figure out the best course of action for your case.
