Ohio Failure to Diagnose / Improper Diagnosis

Missed or Wrong Diagnoses Happen More Often than You Think

Experienced Ohio medical malpractice attorneys protect victims of missed or incorrect diagnoses

When you visit a doctor’s office with a specific complaint, the doctor’s attention is usually focused on that medical condition. But if during an examination for a complaint of, say, tonsillitis, the doctor ignores a tumor growing in the back of your throat, you may have a claim of malpractice. The treatment of the patient as a whole person, and not simply as “a case,” is the hallmark of sound medical practice. When a practitioner unreasonably fails in this, and misses or misdiagnoses an otherwise obvious health problem, they breach their duty of care.

CPW Law’s team of Ohio medical malpractice lawyers, Registered Nurses, and staff defend the rights of patients to receive competent medical care from those licensed to give it. We have secured millions of dollars for clients in settlements and jury verdicts when an unreasonably missed or incorrect diagnosis caused a life-threatening condition to advance, and these funds have compensated the victim for broader or continuing care, and related expenses. Our firm represents injured persons throughout Ohio, including in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chagrin Falls, Chesterland, and Columbus.

Commonly misdiagnosed medical conditions in Ohio

Since doctors spend four years in medical school, two of them in clinical training, a year or two of internship, several years of residency in their specialties, and additional time in private practice or on a hospital staff, you might understandably wonder why some cannot diagnose an illness correctly every time.

But when a doctor thinks you have a health problem but unreasonably orders the wrong test, gets negative results, fails to treat you for it, and your condition worsens, he or she is committing an act of malpractice for which you may be able to receive compensation. Some patients’ symptoms may be baffling, but competent doctors eventually get to the bottom of them and work toward proper treatment. At CPW Law, we have experience handling cases against the doctors who act negligently or incompetently, including instances of:

These are only a few of the types of cases we have successfully resolved, through jury trials or settlement negotiations, that have won our clients fair and just compensation for their injuries.
