When a patient is in a doctor’s office, an emergency room, an operating room or in any type of situation seeking medical care, he or she has a reasonable expectation for high quality medical care. He or she expects that their physician, surgeon, nurse, or medical professional of any kind will follow the proper standard of care. When the standard of care is breached, serious injury, illness and death can occur. This breach of care is unacceptable and puts the patient at great risk. The breach could be a case of misdiagnosis, which is a very serious legal case that requires professional, experienced attorneys to resolve the issue so that justice is served.
At Andrews & Sanders Law Offices in Savannah, Georgia, we represent patients who have sustained serious injuries due to the negligence of hospitals, doctors and medical staff.

Doctors and surgeons have extensive educational and practical experience. Those with specialties — such as oncologists and cardiologists — have additional expertise in their chosen fields. As a patient, or as the family member of a patient, you trusted that when you went to your doctor with a concern over your health, your concerns would be taken seriously and all appropriate measures would be taken to keep you as healthy as possible. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. You somehow wound up here, in the wake of misdiagnosis, because of the negligence of one of these medical professionals. We can help.
Now, in the aftermath of a misdiagnosed disease or illness, or in the aftermath of someone’s death due to a medical mistake, you may be wondering what your options are. Medical malpractice claims are highly technical and complex. Working with medical professionals who are experts in their fields, our attorneys can determine if the standard of care was breached when making the misdiagnosis or in relation to the failed diagnosis. If it was, then you may have the option of pursuing a medical malpractice claim. Having an experienced attorney on your side with extensive knowledge of malpractice cases will make all the difference in yours.
Andrews & Sanders Law Offices handles claims involving the misdiagnosis of health problems that include:
Misdiagnosis or failed diagnoses of any of the above can result in unnecessary surgery, incorrect surgeries, medication errors and numerous other problems. When one mistake has been made, the resulting treatments can be life-ending rather than life-saving.
