When a person in Los Angeles goes to see a doctor with symptoms, they're expecting the correct diagnosis and treatment to take steps to solve the issue. If the doctor makes a mistake, there are times when the error is innocuous and no long-term damage is done. However, if there is the misdiagnosis of a fatal condition or symptoms that might indicate a potential fatal condition, it can result in a wrongful death. One particular medical problem that often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed is pulmonary embolism.
In Los Angeles, and throughout the state of California, one of the most difficult decisions a family has to make is how to deal with a family member who needs rehabilitative care. When a loved one is in a facility of this kind, the worst case scenario for these families is if there is medical malpractice, a nursing home error or some form of abuse occurring. If this is happening or there is a suspicion that it has happened, it's important that the family know how to move forward with an investigation and a possible lawsuit.
