Why Misdiagnoses Occur

The misdiagnosis of a serious illness is almost always due to one of two factors:

  • 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, our team is here to expose wrongdoing and protect your right to compensation.

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 heartburn.

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 Ohio misdiagnosis attorney immediately.
