The Wrong Diagnosis Could Have Fatal Consequences

When you visit a doctor or an Ohio health care facility for treatment of a medical condition and symptoms you are experiencing, you assume that you will receive appropriate care and the right diagnosis. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. There are times when patients receive the wrong diagnosis or do not get the right treatment in time, and it can have fatal consequences.

If you lost a loved one because of medical malpractice, such as errors in diagnosis or the wrong treatment, we can help. At Piscitelli Law Firm, our founding attorney and team assist families dealing with the grief and trauma that follow the unexpected and preventable loss of a family member. Our experience in complex medical malpractice cases allows us to serve as the knowledgeable and effective ally you need during this difficult time.

Life-Threatening Medical Errors

Medical errors, mistakes and lack of appropriate care can have devastating consequences for patients. In some cases, these missteps can lead to a progression of a serious disease, health complications and other issues that can ultimately lead to death. Some of the most common fatal medical errors include the following:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Misdiagnosis of heart attack symptoms
  • Anesthesia errors during surgery
  • Incorrect dosage or other types of prescription medication errors
  • Mistakes made during surgical procedures
  • Emergency room errors

If your loved one died as a result of any of the above or another type of medical error, you may have a rightful claim to financial compensation through a civil claim.
