Failure to Diagnose Cancer

Pittsburgh Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney

After a cancer diagnosis, the earlier the doctor intervenes, the better the possibility is for more favorable results. Learning that you have been diagnosed with cancer can be heartbreaking. However, the devastation intensifies exponentially when you learn that the prognosis could be better if the cancer had been detected sooner. I am medical malpractice lawyer Michael C. George, and I have more than twenty years of experience representing clients through sensitive medical malpractice lawsuits. I understand my clients’ frustrations in not receiving adequate medical care and aggressively pursue compensation for their losses after a doctor fails to timely diagnose cancer. Contact my Pennsylvania medical malpractice law firm to speak with a skilled trial lawyer regarding your case.

Delayed Cancer Diagnosis

Although in some situations, there are no symptoms or other signs that there is a medical problem such as cancer, other cases could and should have been detected. A doctor may ignore symptoms of chest pain, fail to adequately review X-Rays or to order appropriate further testing when necessary. These months or years of negligence and delayed diagnosis could mean the difference between the need for massive surgery or treatment verses minor treatment, or between saving the individual’s life or death.
