Philadelphia Failure to Diagnose Attorneys

Misdiagnosis | Failure to Diagnose | Cancer | Heart Disease | Serious Medical Problems

It happens much too often. You seek a medical opinion because you aren't feeling well. Your doctor either discounts your symptoms or tells you that "it should clear up." Time passes and your discomfort only increases. You finally go in for some testing, only to learn that you have cancer, heart disease or some other serious medical condition. Your cancer may even have spread to other organs. The unfortunate reality is that, had it been caught early, you would probably have been able to overcome it. When you or a loved one suffers needless injury or illness because of a doctor's failure to diagnose a condition or because of a misdiagnosis, you want an experienced Philadelphia personal injury lawyer to help you seek full and fair compensation for all your losses. At Metzger & Kleiner, we have protected the rights of injured people in the greater Philadelphia area and the Lehigh Valley since 1967. We built our successful practice on a commitment to personal service and attention. When you hire us to represent you in a personal injury claim, we will work closely with you at all times, listening carefully to your questions and concerns, and keeping you fully updated on all developments in your case. We will help you understand your options and make certain you always have a realistic expectation of your likelihood of success. To arrange a private meeting, contact us by e-mail or call us at 215-567-6616 in Philadelphia, or 610-435-7400 in the Lehigh Valley to arrange a private meeting. Your first consultation is without cost or obligation.
