Can I Sue A Doctor For Failing To Diagnose My Breast Cancer?

When you do not receive a proper diagnosis for breast cancer or another form of cancer, you may have a right to file a medical malpractice claim. Failure to diagnose, misdiagnoses and delays in diagnosis can severely impact quality of life and sometimes result in the loss of life, especially when dealing with an unforgiving disease like breast cancer. When the warning signs of breast cancer are missed in early stages, it can reduce treatment options and even result in the premature death of our loved ones.

The medical malpractice lawyers at DeMore Law Firm, PLLC, highly encourage anyone who thinks that they may be a victim of malpractice to contact our law firm as soon as possible. In New York, there is a set amount of time that can pass before you can no longer file a claim for compensation. The statute of limitations for filing diagnosis error claims is 30 months (2.5 years) from the date of negligence. Talk to us as soon as you are aware of a diagnostic error. We may be able to help recover financial compensation for your medical provider’s failure to properly and timely diagnose your breast cancer.

Medical Malpractice Cases Are Never Simple

Cancer is a devastating diagnosis. It becomes even more devastating when a person learns that it could have – and should have been – diagnosed sooner than it was. Modern screenings can catch most cancers resulting in earlier treatment if diagnosed properly. Health care providers must follow proper procedures when cancer screenings show some evidence of potentially abnormal test results. When medical providers fail to follow their own policies and procedures to ensure a timely diagnosis, additional treatment may be necessary. Sometimes, death results. That is why our attorneys at DeMore Law Firm, PLLC, take failure to diagnose cases so seriously.
