Diagnosis Errors

Missed or Incorrect Diagnosis?

We rely on our doctors to recognize our symptoms, ask the right questions and reach a correct diagnosis of any medical conditions we have. When medical providers fail to reach a correct diagnosis, they place patients at risk.

At Garmer & Prather, in Lexington, Kentucky, our lawyers handle misdiagnosis cases involving:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer or other serious medical conditions
  • Delayed treatment based on an incorrect diagnosis
  • Unnecessary treatment
  • Medication errors involving the wrong medication or incorrect dose

Our past clients include a woman who remains in a coma with severe brain damage as a result of undiagnosed pneumonia and a young child who suffered brain damage and hearing loss because her doctor failed to diagnose her meningitis. Let us help you and your family handle the legal side of medical negligence so you can focus on the human side.

Because we take on only a small number of cases at a time, we are fully committed to giving each and every client the care and attention he or she deserves. We handle matters of medical malpractice on a contingency basis, which means you pay a fee only if we are successful in securing compensation for you.

Led by Bill Garmer, a proven trial attorney with more than 40 years of experience, our firm has the background and knowledge to pursue even the most complex cases. We have been committed to helping individuals and families recover from medical negligence since Bill started the firm.
