Did Your Doctors Misdiagnose a Serious Illness?
The Cleveland-based law firm of The Lancione Law Firm, is dedicated to making medical care safer and more reliable for people throughout Ohio. We have three generations of attorneys who have extensive experience and a proven record of success in representing clients who have suffered serious harm or the unexpected loss of a loved one due to a physician’s misdiagnosis of a serious, potentially life-threatening condition, such as:
- Heart attack
- Disorders that affect the heart such as cardiomegaly (enlarged heart) or idiopathic cardiomyopathy
- Pulmonary embolism and precursor conditions such as deep vein thrombosis
The misdiagnosis of a serious illness is almost always due to one of two factors: Either the treating physician failed to follow the standards of differential diagnosis, or a laboratory error resulted in “false positive” or “false negative” results. When you or your loved one has suffered due to this kind of negligence, contact our Cleveland serious illness misdiagnosis attorney to discuss your options.
What Is Differential Diagnosis? Ask Our Ohio Medical Negligence Attorneys
In layman’s terms, differential diagnosis is the process by which doctors systematically rule out the most serious, life-threatening conditions and illnesses before proceeding to diagnose a less serious condition. Misdiagnosis caused by failure to conduct differential diagnosis may occur when a patient shows symptoms of a heart attack and the doctor does not perform the necessary tests and instead diagnoses gastritis or heart burn.
Misdiagnosis of a serious illness or other medical condition may have devastating, even fatal results. If you believe you or a loved one suffered serious harm due to a doctor’s negligent care, a laboratory’s error or any other medical negligence, we encourage you to consult an experienced Cleveland serious illness misdiagnosis attorney immediately.
