Cleveland Cancer Misdiagnosis / Delayed Diagnosis Attorneys
Call Our Lawyers for a Free Consultation Today
Of all the research that has gone into cancer treatment over the past several decades, one thing has become clear: Early diagnosis and treatment are keys to increased survival rates. Medical professionals now have a variety of tests and diagnostic tools available to detect cancer at the earliest signs of possible symptoms. There simply is no excuse for a trained physician to withhold tests or fail to check out every possibility that cancer might be a cause of a medical condition.
Cancer misdiagnosis victims may be entitled to compensation if they were improperly diagnosed. This can be achieved by filing a medical negligence claim. This lawsuit is against the doctor, physician, or any party responsible for the misdiagnosis. A misdiagnosis can be a time-consuming process for patients and even cost them their lives. Patients and their families should seek out an attorney to review the facts of the case and file a cancer misdiagnosis suit on their behalf.
How Do I Prove Misdiagnosis?
Many medical malpractice lawsuits are based on failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis claims. When cancer was not accurately diagnosed or delayed, the victim’s prognosis could be affected; impacting the patient’s chance of survival. A plaintiff will need to prove several elements in order for a successful cancer misdiagnosis case to be effective. These elements are:
- A doctor-patient relationship existed
- The doctor breached their duty of care to the patient
- The doctor’s failure to diagnose or the misdiagnosis led to the injury, illness, or death
Expert opinions will be required to prove that a doctor in the same or a similar specialty would not have misdiagnosed the cancer in the patient. Retaining the legal services of an attorney will be an essential step in maximizing your cancer misdiagnosis claim. Reach out to our Cleveland cancer misdiagnosis lawyers today to determine how we can assist you and your family through this difficult experience.
