Did A Doctor Fail To Diagnose A Problem? Lawyers in Pasadena, CA

A health care provider’s failure to diagnose a medical condition can have severe consequences. It prevents doctors and nurses from treating an illness in a timely fashion, and treatments for many medical conditions are more successful when the condition is caught early.

At DeWitt Algorri & Algorri, we have represented numerous individuals who were victims of missed diagnoses and other occurrences of medical malpractice. Our law firm’s experience with investigation and explanation of complex negligent misdiagnosis incidents can make the difference in whether or not you recover the compensation you deserve. We do not get paid unless you do. We take most medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee basis. You will not pay attorney fees unless we obtain a recovery for you, either through negotiation or a court judgment.


Health conditions that are commonly missed completely, misdiagnosed or that receive a delayed diagnosis include:

  • Cancer
  • Aneurysm
  • Heart attack and other cardiac conditions
  • Meningitis or other severe bacterial infections
  • Stroke/cerebral bleeds

Proving a failure to diagnose case is highly complex. It requires a lawyer with a vast amount of medical knowledge, access to top medical experts, the financial resources to build a compelling case, and the ability to take a case to trial against the aggressive and deep-pocketed defense lawyers of malpractice insurance providers. The lawyers at our firm have proven for more than 40 years that they are up to the task, earning numerous multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements for victims of medical malpractice. We have taken and won a number of medical malpractice referrals from other attorneys.

Our legal team seeks compensation for our clients’ medical costs, rehabilitation costs, in-home care (which can include assistance from a family member) and medication, as well as loss of income and loss of quality of life. It is important to emphasize that you are not only securing financial compensation for your suffering, but you are also helping to prevent this kind of malpractice from happening to others. If a loved one lost the fight to cancer or other serious illness or disease, we have the experience and resources to review the situation and provide an honest assessment of whether there is a case for a wrongful death lawsuit.
