Cincinnati Wrong Diagnosis / Failure to Diagnose Lawyers
When a doctor sees a patient, it is crucial that he or she reasonably uses whatever instruments or tests are necessary to identify the ailment and determine a course of treatment. By reaching a diagnosis, the physician can truly begin the process of providing the patient with the help he or she needs. However, a thoughtless mistake in diagnosing a patient can have serious consequences for the ill or injured individual. Instead of receiving the care they need, these patients may suffer worsened or additional health problems as a result of their physicians’ errors.
If your doctor has failed to properly diagnose your injuries or health condition, you may be entitled to pursue compensation to help cover your additional medical bills and treatment costs.

- Wrong diagnoses can cost patients thousands of dollars in unnecessary medical care
