What is a Cancer Misdiagnosis?

When it comes to cancer, time is of the essence. A delay in diagnosis can be the difference between early and late stages of the disease and can have a dramatic impact on survival rates, availability of treatment and the degree of pain and suffering.  Cancer misdiagnosis cases can be extremely difficult because the science and medicine is complex and many attorneys simply don’t have the experience and resources necessary to handle these cases properly.

What Can I Do About A Cancer Misdiagnosis?

The medicine and science of cancer detection has advanced greatly in the last couple of decades and yet, still, there are many, many cases where health care providers, even at the very best hospitals, just get it wrong.  We have handled cases where the xray wasn’t read correctly; where the signs were not appreciated in time; where the medication was not administered properly; even cases where a person was diagnosed with cancer and received treatment only to learn later that there never was any cancer there.  What should you do?  Make sure you speak with a lawyer who has experience with these very complex, very sensitive cases.
