North Carolina Failure to Diagnose Cancer Lawyers

When Medical Professionals Fail to Uphold the Standard Duty of Care

Cancer is one of the most common—and deadly—medical conditions in the United States. In most cases, early detection and treatment are key to successfully beating cancer. This requires an accurate and timely diagnosis from a qualified medical professional.

If you or your loved one did not receive prompt cancer treatment as a result of a delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your damages. At Lanier Law Group, P.A., we understand the immense emotional distress and financial burdens a doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer can have on you and your family; our team is prepared to fight for you.

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. Our North Carolina failure to diagnose cancer attorneys have assisted medical malpractice victims suffering from breast cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, and other forms of cancer, as well as the surviving family members of those who died due to their doctor’s failure to diagnose. We know the challenges you are up against, and we know how to fight for the maximum compensation you and your loved ones are entitled to.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
