When you or a loved one are diagnosed with cancer, every moment counts. When doctors fail to diagnose someone with cancer or mistakenly diagnose an individual with cancer, the consequences are life threatening. The attorneys at the Licatesi Law Group are right at your side fighting to earn you the compensation that you deserve.
A missed or delayed diagnosis of cancer can cause unnecessary suffering to a patient as well as the patient’s loved ones. While cancer takes almost 600,000 lives per year in the United States, early detection and treatment can save those who are treated properly. Unfortunately, some medical professionals fail to properly diagnose and treat their patients.
Some potential causes of misdiagnosis of cancer include:
When a doctor misdiagnoses a patient, it can lead to that individual undergoing unnecessary and painful treatment. Procedures such as radiation and chemotherapy can cause permanent damage to a patient who did not need it in the first place. Additionally, while these treatments take a toll on the body, it can bring substantial financial burdens on the individual and their family.
