Jim Beasley Jr., Scott Bennett, and Jimmy Binns represented the family of a man who was hit head-on by a drunk driver. This driver went to two bars, the second bar whose identify was unknown until The Beasley Firm’s relentless investigation identified this bar. After extensive and aggressive discovery, The Beasley Firm was able to prove that these bars were aware of this driver’s drunken state, and with the threat of a trial looming, they settled for a record amount.
When a person experiences serious or even minor medical symptoms, it is a natural reaction to feel nervous. People will go see their doctor for an evaluation and in order to gain peace of mind or the proper care. You are supposed to be able to trust your physician or nurse practitioner. They are smart, well-educated people. Their careers revolve around keeping their patients healthy and properly diagnosing and treating those patients who are not. Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen. When individuals are harmed by the very people who are supposed to properly diagnose them, it can be confusing and difficult to determine next steps.

Oftentimes a patient may have all of the risk factors for a certain disease, such as having a family history and presence of the breast/ovarian cancer genes and still be misdiagnosed. Sometimes CT scans or MRIs are improperly read, a proper medical history is not taken, or the doctor or nurse practitioner just failed to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Regardless of the reason, patients should not have to undergo prolonged pain and suffering because of their doctor's negligence.
Sometimes a nervous patient turns to their doctor for a diagnosis-and some reassurance-and, unfortunately, their doctor or nurse practitioner will misdiagnose their illness or injury. Even though the symptoms might fit a certain illness, the doctor or nurse may not immediately recognize it.
Failure to diagnose begins a chain reaction of improper treatment or lack of treatment:
Failure to diagnose a patient can lead to excessive medical costs, irreversible damage, and unfortunately, sometimes even death. Failure to diagnose cancer, strokes, depression, meningitis, brain tumors, infections, and hundreds of other medical problems is all too common. In fact, misdiagnosis is the leading cause of medical malpractice. Illnesses that could have been quickly remedied suddenly become much worse as a result of improper diagnosis and inadequate treatment. Patients and their loved ones should not have to suffer as a result of a medical professional's negligence.
