Learning that you have cancer is a shock that nobody takes well. Anger will play a big part in most people’s acceptance process. Even more so, in cases where a doctor failed to do tests, diagnose, or treat your disease when symptoms first appeared.
If you or a loved one are suffering as a result of a doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer, our medical malpractice attorneys want you to know that you are not alone. We’ll work with you to ensure that you receive adequate compensation, to cover your increased medical costs, and more.
Delayed Cancer Treatments
It’s a well-known fact that the earlier a doctor is able to diagnose cancer, the better the patient’s prognosis will be. If your cancer was allowed to continue to progress while your doctor put off the necessary tests, the treatments you will have to undergo to achieve remission or full health will be a lot more aggressive. This places an incredible amount of physical, mental, and financial stress on patients and their families.
How Can a Failure to Diagnose Cancer Lawyer Help?
As medical malpractice attorneys, we have experience in cases like yours. Only an experienced failure to diagnose cancer lawyer can efficiently pinpoint the errors that were made. Medical malpractice attorneys will work with a team of medical experts, to determine how your illness progressed while you awaited diagnosis, and what your consequences were, for your doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer.
In addition to the increased cost of treatments, some of the damages you may be eligible for include:
- Mental trauma
- Lost wages
- Loss of future income
- Decreased quality of life
- Ongoing medical care
Your Boston medical malpractice lawyer understands that no amount of money will lessen the severity of your situation. However, being able to quickly and effectively attain the needed funding for the best treatments available will give you the best possible chance.
Not all cases of failure to diagnose cancer will be found to involve medical malpractice. Some symptoms are broad and can point to several different possible diseases. If we find that your doctor didn’t do everything they reasonably could be expected to do, to correctly diagnose your cancer, we will help you see that justice is served.
