Franklin County Severe Medical Error Lawyers
Our life-threatening medical error attorneys represent clients who were not properly diagnosed, and suffered as a result. Commonly misdiagnosed serious conditions include:
- Heart attack
- Heart disorders such as coronary artery disease, cardiomegaly (enlarged heart) or idiopathic cardiomyopathy
- Pulmonary embolism and precursor conditions such as deep vein thrombosis
Misdiagnosis of a serious illness most commonly occurs when the doctor failed to use the appropriate standard of diagnosis, known as differential diagnosis, or when the lab makes a mistake.
What Is Differential Diagnosis?
Differential diagnosis is a process that allows doctors to systematically rule out serious, life threatening conditions and illnesses. If this process is not used properly, a patient showing signs of meningitis may be diagnosed with a severe headache instead.
Misdiagnosis of a serious medical condition may have devastating, sometimes fatal results. When you believe that you or a loved one have been seriously harmed due to a failure to properly diagnose a serious or life-threatening condition, we encourage you to consult an experienced Columbus misdiagnosis of serious illness lawyer right away.
