Types of Serious Kidney Disease

The kidney filters waste products out of the blood, regulating blood pressure, red blood cell counts, and other important bodily functions. The kidney can contract a number of diseases – most of which can prove fatal without prompt treatment.

Serious kidney diseases can take the form of the following:

  • Infections or sepsis
  • Muscle breakdown (rhabdomyolysis)
  • Multiple myelomas
  • Hemolytic uremic syndrome
  • Prostate cancer
  • Tumors
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Alport’s disease
  • Kidney stones

Kidney diseases can affect a patient without revealing symptoms until the disease is in an advanced stage and causing kidney failure. It’s up to a physician to notice the signs of kidney problems, make a timely diagnosis, and treat the underlying disease quickly.

The Effects of Failure to Diagnose and Treat Kidney Diseases

The most common effect of failure to diagnose and treat kidney disease is kidney failure. The symptoms of kidney failure include difficulty breathing, weakness, swelling, fatigue, and confusion. Advanced cases can cause abnormal heart palpitations and sudden death. Unfortunately, kidney failure may not show any outward signs until advanced stages. Proper diagnosis procedures and tests can help catch kidney diseases before they permanently impact the patient.

Who Is Liable?

Someone else may be liable for the damages you’ve suffered from kidney disease if a timely diagnosis would have prevented them. If you believe another physician could have diagnosed your kidney disease and treated you faster, contact a lawyer about a potential medical malpractice claim. You may be eligible to recover your malpractice-related medical bills, lost income, physical pain, emotional suffering, and other damages depending on your case. If you lost a loved one to undiagnosed kidney disease, your family could recover additional damages.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

Failure to diagnose kidney disease and other medical malpractice claims deal with complex Florida laws and filing requirements. Claimants have two years from the date of the mistake to file a claim against a doctor, nurse, hospital, or another defendant. Claimants must carry out a complicated settlement process that involves an affidavit of merit, a 90-day legal process, a potential investigation period, a statute of limitations, damage caps, and more. The only way to optimize your odds of obtaining financial recovery is with help from an attorney.
