Failure to Diagnose Attorneys in Kansas City

Misdiagnosis Lawyers Fighting for You

At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our attorneys understand the frustration you feel when you or a family member cannot get an accurate diagnosis of an illness. Frequently, the consequences of a failure to diagnose are far more serious than mere frustration. For many illnesses such as cancer, speedy treatment is crucial to success in eradicating the illness. A missed or wrong diagnosis can lead to a long-term illness, inability to continue working, a permanent disability requiring long-term care, or death.

At Dempsey & Kingsland, we work to acquire fair compensation for injuries caused by negligent failure to diagnose illnesses or medical conditions. Our experienced Kansas City medical malpractice lawyers, working with a team of medical experts from around the country, can evaluate your case and determine the full extent of the damage caused by negligent misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose your medical condition.

To speak with one of our lawyers during a free initial consultation, contact us at (816) 484-3776. There is no attorney’s fee until we recover the compensation you need and deserve.
