Diagnosis Errors


If you’re a victim of a medical diagnosis error, you may have years of surgery or rehabilitation ahead of you to undo the damage. Worse yet, you may have years cut off your life. If this has happened to you or a loved one, the attorneys at Friedman, Domiano & Smith can help you determine if you should file a claim.


Diagnosis errors are the number one reason why medical specialists are sued. In fact, between 1985 and 2009, 26.4% of all cases that closed were due to diagnosis errors by a medical professional. The experienced trial lawyers at Friedman, Domiano & Smith have a record of favorable verdicts and settlements in medical misdiagnosis claims such as:

  • Heart attack misdiagnosis
  • Stroke misdiagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of cancer
  • Failure to diagnose a head injury
  • Wrong diagnosis of diabetes
  • Misdiagnoses of other serious conditions


At Friedman, Domiano & Smith, we know that every client’s situation is different. When we meet with you, we will talk candidly about your situation and offer advice on your legal options.
