Advocating For Clients With Delayed Cancer Diagnoses
Early diagnosis of breast cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer and other cancers is known to help increase the survival rate beyond the five-year milestone. Despite screening techniques available, medical professionals are known to overlook key warning signs and treat for less serious medical conditions before diagnosing cancer.
If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer several months after initially seeing a doctor, obtain experienced legal help. The medical malpractice attorneys at our firm will thoroughly investigate the level of care you received. We will evaluate your medical records to determine if your doctor failed to refer you to a specialist in a timely manner.
We will also seek to understand if your radiologist misread your diagnostic studies. Our ability to collect as much evidence as possible helps us prove fault, while holding negligent medical professionals accountable.
Pursuing Justice For Clients
Heart conditions are known to progress over several years, before triggering an attack that sends a patient to an emergency room. The complication behind heart attacks is that they often appear initially as a less serious medical condition.
If you or a loved one recently suffered a heart attack after your doctor diagnosed a less serious condition, obtain experienced legal help. The medical malpractice attorneys at our firm will conduct a detailed investigation to uncover any negligent acts. We will review your medical history to understand if your primary care physician failed in referring you to a specialist.
We will pursue an aggressive medical malpractice claim against your doctor or medical specialist for failing to order appropriate tests, including EKGs, blood tests, nuclear scans, coronary angiography MRIs, MRAs and CT scans. A negligent doctor who overlooks key warning signs could have put you or your loved one at great risk of permanent brain damage, paralysis and even death. We will take every step possible to prove fault and help you obtain justice.
