Compensation in Failure to Diagnose Cases
Sadly, a medical professional's failure to diagnose cancer can lead to delayed treatment—or no treatment at all. This can have grave, often fatal consequences. Victims and their families should not have to face the financial and emotional burdens associated with a misdiagnosis on their own.
If a medical professional/facility is found to have acted negligently by failing to diagnose you or your loved one’s cancer, you may be entitled to recover compensation for:
- The cost of additional medical treatment
- Lost income/wages from time taken off work
- Lost or reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Funeral costs (in wrongful death cases)
- Loss of companionship, support, etc. (in wrongful death cases)
Our attorneys can investigate your case and determine if you have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. We work to quickly obtain all relevant medical records and other available evidence to build a solid claim on your behalf.
Determining If You Have a Case
It’s important to note that a doctor's initial inability to identify cancer does not necessarily constitute negligence. To prove negligence, you must show that the medical professional in question failed to uphold the standard duty of care; that is, he or she failed to take all reasonable actions—ordering tests, interpreting lab results, documenting symptoms, etc.—that another qualified medical professional would have done in the same situation.
If you believe a doctor ignored your symptoms, misinterpreted your lab results, or was otherwise negligent in diagnosing cancer, reach out to Lanier Law Group.
