Cincinnati Wrong Diagnosis Attorney
Most Americans operate under the assumption that if they are injured or ill, they can go to a doctor who will accurately diagnose their medical problem and provide them with the treatment they need to return to full health.
However, in many cases, this assumption is unfortunately faulty. In the medical community, it is not uncommon for a patient’s ailment to go undiagnosed by his or her doctor for dangerously long periods of time, or for a person to receive an incorrect medical diagnosis and fail to receive treatment for his actual medical needs.
In both of these situations, the medical bills a patient will accumulate, as well as the pain and suffering he or she will be forced to endure, will be considerable. If you have experienced either of these situations, you need a legal professional to help you work through the complicated process of proving medical malpractice so that you can receive the compensation you need and deserve.

The Dangers of Wrong Diagnosis / Failure to Diagnose
In the case of a doctor’s failure to diagnose a patient or when a doctor provides a patient with an incorrect diagnosis, the result is the same and is incredibly dangerous—the patient is not getting treatment for a medical condition that he or she actually has. The longer the real issue goes untreated, the more likely it is that it could reach a point that it is no longer treatable, or is only treatable with extreme and risky medical procedures.
Cincinnati medical malpractice attorney Stepleton Dugan, LLC will fight to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve in cases dealing with a doctor’s failure to diagnose or an incorrect medical diagnosis.
If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, it is critical that you hold the responsible individuals accountable for their actions, not only to ensure compensation for your pain and suffering, but in order to prevent situations similar to yours from happening again in the future.
