Misdiagnosis of Appendicitis

Medical Malpractice Attorneys in New York City

Timely diagnosis of appendicitis is imperative. Left untreated, the appendix can burst, releasing toxic substances into the body, which could lead to serious illness or death. If you or a loved one suffered due to the misdiagnosis of appendicitis, you have legal options. You may be able to file a medical malpractice claim and recover compensation.

At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, our lawyers have more than three decades of experience representing clients in complex medical malpractice claims. We have a long history of successful results. We are leaders in medical malpractice organizations and have frequently written and lectured on the subject.

Signs of Appendicitis

Symptoms of appendicitis include sharp abdominal pain, nausea, abdominal swelling, fever and constipation. Sometimes these symptoms can be mistaken for the flu or another stomach virus. In order to have a valid legal claim, your doctor must have made clear errors in diagnosis that led to your suffering or harm.

Examples of this include:

  • Ignoring a symptom, or dismissing it as unimportant
  • Failing to conduct a complete medical exam
  • Failing to order appropriate tests
  • Misdiagnosing your illness despite clear signs that you had appendicitis
