Pinpointing The Cause Of Delayed Or Improper Treatment

Misdiagnosis of serious conditions like cancer, heart disease, stroke, aneurysm and bone fractures can have serious long-term consequences, including permanent disability and death. In some cases, failure to properly diagnose a serious medical condition can result in delayed or incorrect treatments that make medical problems worse, not better. Sometimes the results are catastrophic.

If you have been diagnosed with a condition that should have shown up during a previous doctor’s visit or test; if you were sent home early from the emergency room; or if you have been given the runaround by medical providers about why your condition was not diagnosed or treated earlier, you may be the victim of negligent medical care.

Was Your Cancer Diagnosed Too Late?

When cancer is present in a person’s body, time is of the essence. Once the cancer is detected, it must be treated promptly. Unfortunately, cancer is not always detected when it should be. In some cases, this is because a doctor failed to diagnose certain symptoms or conditions correctly. Among the cancers for which early diagnosis is crucial are:

  • Lung cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Melanoma
  • Oral cancer

Failure to diagnose and promptly treat cancer may be the result of medical malpractice. If you have been harmed by negligent delays in treating or diagnosing cancer, our attorneys can help you.

Holding Medical Providers Accountable For Errors

Physicians and hospital personnel make mistakes just like anyone else, but when their mistakes breach the professional standards of medical care and cause permanent injuries or death, medical providers may be financially responsible to the victim or the victim’s family. Our experienced lawyers aggressively pursue full and fair monetary compensation for all damages, including past and future medical bills, lost wages, disability, disfigurement, scarring, and pain and suffering.
