Failure to Diagnose Cancer

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Cancer is a serious illness that may take a combination of chemotherapy, surgery and medication to properly treat. However, if you are not treated in a timely manner, your odds of surviving are reduced significantly. What steps can you take if you believe that your doctor or another medical professional failed to diagnose your cancer?

Should a Medical Professional Have Known That It Was Cancer?

Before you can take legal action against your doctor or another medical professional, you must show that he or she should have known that you had cancer. This may be done by talking about the types of tests that were performed or the types of tools used to examine your body before a diagnosis was made.

The experience level of the person who you saw will also factor into whether or not medical malpractice took place. Someone who may have just been starting out or who may have little experience with certain types of cancer may make the wrong diagnosis because of a lack of knowledge.

Were You Treated for Any Other Medical Condition?

If you were incorrectly diagnosed with another medical condition, you may have been subjected to medication or other treatments that had their own side effects. In addition to not treating the cancer, it could have also weakened your immune system or caused other damage unnecessarily. In the event that you were treated in a negligent manner, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills or other costs associated with that improper treatment.

What If You Were Diagnosed With the Wrong Type of Cancer?

In the event that you were diagnosed with the wrong type of cancer, you could still be entitled to compensation. This is because a medical professional will take a different course of action to treat breast cancer compared to treating colon or prostate cancer. You could also be subject to the removal of limbs or other internal organs unnecessarily.

What Types of Compensation Could a Patient Recover?

Even if you eventually receive the correct diagnosis, it doesn’t mean that your doctor or others who diagnosed you are off the hook. You may still receive a financial award to help pay for medical bills and other costs related to the initial misdiagnosis. If your quality of life is reduced for any reason, you may be compensated for that as well. A spouse or child may also sue for financial damages if your relationship with that person changes because of the damage caused by the negligence by a medical professional.

What If an Individual Dies From His or Her Cancer?

If an individual passes on because of cancer that was never diagnosed, his or her family may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit on his or her behalf. This may allow the family to collect compensation for the deceased family member’s medical bills and final expenses. Compensation may also be available for lost future earnings related to wrongful death. Punitive damages may also be included in any award that may be negotiated outside of court or determined after a jury trial.

Cancer can be difficult enough to deal with when it is properly diagnosed and can be treated. When it is not diagnosed correctly, you can struggle with a variety of physical and emotional issues related to not knowing what is wrong with you. If you have been the victim of a medical professional’s inability to diagnose cancer in a timely manner, it may be a good idea to contact an attorney right away.
