Take Legal Action If Your Doctor Misdiagnosed Your Cancer
In many cases, cancer does not have to be fatal — if it is caught in time. If your doctor fails to diagnose your cancer because of carelessness or a preventable mistake, your prognosis may be worse than it could have been. You could lose time with the ones you love, all because of a doctor’s critical errors.
The Harrisburg attorneys of Marzella & Associates believe that doctors should be held responsible whenever they negligently misdiagnose a patient’s cancer. If you experienced a delay in treatment because of this, we can help you pursue a medical malpractice claim against the responsible doctor, clinic or hospital. We have more than 30 years of experience in Pennsylvania medical malpractice law.
Exposing Incompetent Cancer Doctors In Pennsylvania
We fight for victims of malpractice who have had their cancer go untreated for far too long due to a doctor’s errors or disregard for their patients. Delayed diagnosis can force you to undergo more intense treatment for a longer period than you otherwise might have had to. Sadly, many families lose loved ones who may have beaten their cancer had they gotten diagnosed promptly.
Reasons cancer gets negligently misdiagnosed include:
- Failure to pay attention when the patient describes their symptoms, or ignoring their concerns
- Failure to order appropriate tests
- Misreading test results
Whatever the reasons your doctor missed your cancer, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages and subsequent medical bills. If your spouse, parent or child died as a result of medical malpractice, we will pursue compensation for you and your loved one’s estate.
