Kidney Disease Misdiagnosis Lawyers
For optimum well-being, healthy kidneys are imperative. When your kidneys are not functioning properly, you are at risk for a number of additional health problems such as nerve damage, heart failure, bone disease, and infertility. However, accurate and early diagnosis can often reduce and sometimes even reverse the consequences of kidney failure. In other cases, early diagnosis, the right medication and proper treatment can keep the disease in a chronic but manageable phase, so the disease does not progress to end-stage kidney failure. For every kidney failure patient, an early and accurate diagnosis is essential. If you or a loved one suffer from kidney disease and medical professionals have failed to properly diagnose or treat your condition, speak at once with one of our experienced kidney disease misdiagnosis lawyers at the Miami-based law firm of Kurzban, Kurzban, Weinger, Tetzeli & Pratt, P.A.
Cases involving a failure to diagnose or medical mistakes and errors are unique from most other wrongful death and personal injury cases. Therefore, it’s important that you trust your renal failure case to a team of attorneys who have the experience required to determine liability, file a lawsuit and oversee litigation as you strive to secure the compensation you deserve. That’s precisely what you’ll receive when you turn to a lawyer with the practice of Kurzban, Kurzban, Weinger, Tetzeli & Pratt, P.A.
KIDNEY DISEASE SYMPTOMS
A person with kidney failure may have these symptoms: discolored urine, blood in the urine, or foamy urine; dangerously high blood pressure; and/or swelling in the hands and ankles. A number of tests are available for kidney failure screening, including: tests for blood (hematuria) and protein (proteinuria) in the urine; blood tests for decreased protein, increased creatinine, and abnormal blood urea nitrogen (BUN); blood pressure measurements; glomerular filtration rate tests; MRIs, CT scans, and kidney biopsies. When you tell or show your doctor that you are suffering the symptoms of kidney failure, failing to test for it is medical negligence. General practitioners are generally not trained or equipped to treat kidney disease, so when the tests indicate kidney abnormalities, failing to refer the patient to a kidney specialist may also be medical negligence. Kidney doctors – nephrologists – test and treat most of their patients on the basis of referrals from general practitioners.
