New York Medical Misdiagnosis attorney
The late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer can mean the difference between life and death for many patients. A doctor’s ability to treat cancer often turns on how far along the cancer has progressed. A stage-4 cancer patient is much less likely to respond to treatment and recover from cancer than a patient whose cancer was located and identified early on. If you or a loved one suffered as the result of late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer, you may be able to recover significant damages on behalf of your family against any negligent doctor for a failure to diagnose breast cancer and unnecessary hysterectomies. At Kramer & Dunleavy, LLP, we are experienced in representing the women and families of late or misdiagnosis.
Where a late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer leads to an inability to treat a patient, you and your family may be entitled to significant compensation. We will assert your rights against negligent doctors, technicians, or hospitals.
Reproductive organ cancers such as cervical or ovarian cancer can be treated when symptoms are quickly acted upon. Unfortunately, there are many doctors who ignore symptoms and fail to administer the appropriate tests to diagnose cancer. Our attorneys are experienced in representing those patients and families who have suffered from a late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer. Contact our New York City Law Firm for more information on your potential claim.
We are experienced with the following misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer:
Lung cancer: Lung cancer may be identified through a number of symptoms or a chest x-ray.
Breast cancer: Breast cancer is usually identified after a mammogram or breast exam. If your doctor or radiologist failed to properly read a mammogram or sonogram, our attorneys will pursue necessary legal action to assert your claim and rights.
Colon cancer: Your doctor may or may not have ordered a colonoscopy, but without proper analysis, cancer may not have been diagnosed. We can assist you in investigating your medical records to identify negligent parties.
Cervical cancer: Cervical cancer may be diagnosed after a pap smear, biopsy, or other test. Our attorneys routinely represent victims of cervical cancer and their families who have been victims of a late or misdiagnosis.
Ovarian cancer: A woman who has ovarian cancer may have symptoms that are unnoticed by a gynecologist. Our attorneys are experienced in representing women whose ovarian cancer was not diagnosed in time for appropriate treatment.
Late or misdiagnosis is recognized as a loss because the survival rate may decrease significantly as a result.
Many medical professionals are overworked and untrained. Without accountability under the legal system, negligence will continue to threaten the future healthcare of other patients. Our attorneys are dedicated to working with victims to identify issues and force progress within hospitals and the medical profession. If your family has suffered as the result of misdiagnosis or late diagnosis of cancer, contact our office. We would be happy to provide a free consultation and evaluation of your claim.
