Not all instances of misdiagnosis are good personal injury claims. There must be solid proof that a doctor in good standing failed to diagnose the cancer, despite there being solid evidence supporting the illness. At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo Plotkin & Hellman LLP, we have access to a network of resources and frequently work with medical experts who can properly analyze your case. They can provide solid testimony as to whether a misread mammogram or other error caused the failure to diagnose.
