New Jersey Failure To Treat a Medical Condition Attorneys
Protecting Victims of Medical Negligence in Passaic County and throughout New Jersey
Our health is always a delicate balance, with fluctuations that we may recognize as minor changes over time or catastrophic problems that require immediate medical attention. Although we may be in touch with our general feelings of well-being, it is far less likely that we can recognize the exact causes of our symptoms when they arise. Without medical training, we rely on our doctors to recognize our symptoms, identify the underlying medical condition, and recommend appropriate treatment. When they fail to do so, this negligence can allow otherwise treatable ailments to progress without intervention and potentially lead to severe or even life-threatening health complications.
If you or a loved one has suffered harm because of a doctor’s failure to accurately diagnose or treat your medical condition, you may have grounds to pursue compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Conditions that May be Improperly Diagnosed or Treated
Cases involving a failure to diagnose or treat a medical condition can be extremely complex. We work closely with you to create a timeline to show when you first reported the symptoms to your doctor and the action (or lack thereof) that the doctor took in response. When appropriate, we work with medical experts who can help us present the strongest possible argument to show that a reasonable doctor would have recognized the symptoms and prescribed appropriate treatment. We seek compensation for your medical expenses and any available damages for the impact on your quality of life or other considerations.
We often represent clients who have suffered harm as a result of their doctor’s failure to diagnose and/or treat the following conditions:
- Stroke or heart attack
- Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS)
