Can I Sue a Pathologist for Their Mistake? Yes, And We Can Help
People don’t really think about pathologists and the role they play, because most of us really don’t come into contact with these medical specialists, and only count on our primary care physicians to do the diagnosing and treatments. Pathologists are medical experts charged with examining body fluid and tissue in order to discover any illnesses that the patient may have. They usually work alone or in small groups, and they work in a lab setting. Pathologists are the people who will determine for example based off your biopsy if you have a cancerous tumor, or if you have an autoimmune disease given the protein markers in your blood or plasma. Pathologists therefore are gatekeepers of the medical industry, and one small mistake can lead to a world of hurt or even death such as in the case of a cancer that was misdiagnosed or caught too late because of diagnostic mistakes. In such instances, patients are well within their rights when it comes to filing a pathologist malpractice lawsuit to recover justice and compensation, and that’s where we come in.
