Primary Care Physician Negligence Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

Doctors are under oath to do no harm, but sadly, they sometimes cause injuries and fail to identify or treat illnesses because of inattention or carelessness. Medical errors, delayed diagnoses, and wrong diagnoses can prevent patients from getting the medical treatment they need.

When Does Primary Care Physician Negligence Occur?

Primary care physicians, such as family or internal medicine doctors, are often where we go first when we are sick or not feeling well. These doctors may fail to refer their patients to specialists for medical attention that is beyond their expertise, or to order tests necessary to make a correct diagnosis. They may also neglect to follow-up on a test results, x-rays, MRIs or CT studies that reveal treatable abnormalities. Negligent errors can occur in your doctor’s office, a hospital, a clinic, a nursing home, or anywhere where professional and licensed medical treatment is provided.
