Early diagnosis and intervention is often the key to beating cancer. However, if doctors fail to provide accepted care in evaluating, testing, or diagnosing patients, it can deprive them of the opportunity to receive life-saving treatment or care that prevents avoidable injuries.

Cancer Misdiagnosis & Medical Negligence
Treatment for late stage cancer is more expensive, dangerous, and less successful than treatment for early stage cancer. If you or someone you love has been misdiagnosed, you may find yourself struggling under the financial burden of surgery and chemotherapy treatments and at a loss for how to deal with incalculable emotional suffering.
When a provider’s substandard care is the cause of a cancer misdiagnosis, patients have the right to hold them accountable by bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit. These civil claims can involve all types of negligent acts and errors committed by providers, including:
- Failure to diagnose skin cancer
- Incorrect interpretation of imaging, biopsies, or lab tests
- Lab testing errors
- Administrative errors
- Failures to refer patients
- Failures to conduct adequate patient exam
- Failure to perform colonoscopy
Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose are two of the most devastating problems that can occur when you seek medical treatment from a doctor. When the condition turns out to be cancer, the situation is much worse. Our firm is dedicated to helping our clients fight their medical malpractice suits. Let us handle your case so that you can rest and recover from the harrowing experience you have been through.
