Allergist or Immunologist Malpractice – Call Us To File Today
Allergies are on the rise, and lifestyle factors as well as our diet are said to be the proximate cause. Allergies to food, the environment as well as chemicals can range from mild to life-threatening, and without prompt and regular treatment, some individuals may not have the quality of life they envision having, while others may lose their lives on account of an anaphylactic shock reaction. Allergists or immunologists are medical specialists that deal with disorders of the immune system that cause allergic reaction. They diagnose and treat conditions such as hives, asthma, food allergies and other forms of reactions, and they must adhere to a certain standard of care in order to keep their patients safe at all times. This standard of care, if breached, leading to the patient suffering complications, may be grounds for an immunologist lawsuit, which we can help you with filing and winning.

Allergists are required to study for an undergraduate degree before joining medical school. After this, they can specialize in immunology, and then will have to get board certified after doing their residency and fellowship, two programs that will vouch for their competence and determine whether or not they get board certified. In addition, physicians are required to add to their knowledge by undergoing continuing education courses as well as take exams as needed. All this can take an allergist or immunologist over 13 years before they are certified as a bona fide physician that deals with disorders and reactions of the immune system.
Here are some of the negligent acts associated with allergist or immunologist malpractice:
- Failure to diagnose in a timely manner
- Failure to document patient findings
- Failure to supervise
- Failure to prescribe epinephrine
- Failure to read lab results correctly
- Not informing patients of the foods that they should avoid
- Inappropriate relationships with their patients
- Patient misdiagnosis

A lot of the malpractice cases involving immunologists or allergies have to do with failure to diagnose. This is because individuals that may have a family history of allergies may find that they have a reaction when for instance eating certain foods, and are surprised and dismayed to find out that eating said foods provokes a severe allergic reaction. The breach of standard of care here would lie in failure to inform or diagnose, both negligent acts. Want to know what you can sue for and what your case is worth?
