Guidance From Misdiagnosis Lawyers Who Know Medicine In Ohio And Kentucky
Time is often the most critical factor in treating an illness. Catching a disease as soon as possible can make the difference in saving a person’s quality of life and preventing death. Because of the importance of timeliness, medical professionals must apply the correct standards of care when diagnosing a patient. When doctors misdiagnose a patient and that patient is harmed, they should be held legally accountable for their negligent actions.

Understanding Misdiagnosis And Medical Malpractice
Just misdiagnosing someone does not allow a person to file a malpractice claim against a medical professional. To prove a case, the injured person must prove that they were the patient of the medical professional, that the medical professional did not follow the generally accepted standards of care and that this failure to diagnose caused an injury. Because of these stringent requirements, it is important for injured people to have a knowledgeable attorney who will closely investigate every aspect of your misdiagnosis to build a case.
Our attorneys help clients with all types of misdiagnosis cases, including:
- Cancer misdiagnosis
- Delayed or missed diagnosis
- Failure to recognize complications
- Failure to diagnose a second or unrelated disease
