Vigorous Legal Representation For Victims Of Misdiagnosis
Successful and effective medical care depends on the timely and accurate diagnosis of whatever condition is afflicting a patient. Diagnosis is the first stage of care. Any failure at that level leaves the actual condition untreated and can leave the patient at risk for a worsening of his or her condition or even death.
Consequences Of An Ohio Doctor’s Failure To Diagnose Or Misdiagnosis
Some of the common medical conditions that are most susceptible to the amplifying effect of a failure to diagnose or a misdiagnosis include:
- Cancer (breast cancer, melanoma, ovarian cancer)
- Stroke (hemorrhagic, ischemic)
- Heart attack
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose can occur in a wide range of situations. Not recognizing cancer or a heart attack can cause a patient to suffer more severe injuries. During treatment of a stroke, the timing and amount of the drug tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) that is used can have a dramatic effect on the patient’s health.
