Failure to Diagnose Cancer

Losing time when a doctor fails to diagnose cancer

A cancer misdiagnosis has a great impact on the patient and the entire family. When a medical professional fails to diagnose cancer in a timely and appropriate manner, your entire family can suffer unnecessarily as you deal with an illness that should have received earlier treatment or as the family deals with a death that might have been prevented.

A Minnesota lawyer experienced with misdiagnosis cases can investigate the circumstances, explain your legal options, and help you decide what actions to take to hold the medical professionals involved responsible for their negligence.

When a doctor fails to diagnose cancer, possible outcomes can include:

  • Missed timing for treatments
  • Prolonged treatment times
  • Grievous advancement of the cancer
  • Total disablement due to untreated cancer
  • Death due to untreated cancer

It is important to hold medical professionals accountable for their actions when a misdiagnosis causes grievous harm. Their failure to diagnose cancer can result in loss of the enjoyment of life, loss of income and loss of life itself.
