A failure to diagnose cancer or another deadly disease puts patients in a very dangerous situation. If caught early, conditions may be able to be contained and even cured completely. If left unattended, life-changing consequences, and even death can result.

Holding Doctors Accountable for Failing to Correctly Diagnose Your Disease
Cancer is a serious enough disease on its own. When a doctor fails to diagnose it on time, the chances of survival are reduced drastically. This type of negligence cannot and should not be tolerated. At our law firm, we work with you to hold the negligent parties accountable so mistakes like this are not made in the future.
If a doctor failed to properly diagnose your cancer or other disease, our experienced team can help. Whether your X-rays were read incorrectly, your symptoms were not fully taken into account or your doctor failed to refer you to a specialist, we will advocate on your behalf to obtain justice.
What Happens Next?
First, our team will research all of the medical treatment you have had. By requesting all records and diagnoses you have had, we are able to compare what the doctors thought was wrong to what was actually happening. We then can put the hospital and other physicians as well as the insurance company on notice, opening them up to negotiations. If they are unwilling to admit fault or any wrongdoing, then we can take your case to court to fight for your rights on your behalf. A jury will then ultimately decide on the matter.
Throughout this process we conduct thorough interviews of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. We are also able to gather testimony from expert witnesses to be used at trial.
