How To Respond To A Cancer Misdiagnosis
Despite cancer being one of the leading causes of death in our country, doctors misdiagnose anywhere between 10% and 28% of their patients with cancer. The longer cancer has to grow unnoticed, the more dangerous it can be, even resulting in worsened conditions, cancer metastasizing or even the death of the patient. When a misdiagnosis causes you or a loved one to suffer such serious consequences, you need help holding liable parties accountable.
At Garau Germano, P.C., we know how deadly a doctor’s lack of knowledge or faulty testing equipment can be. It does not matter if a doctor failed to recognize the signs of cancer or if the lab didn’t properly run their tests, they should be responsible for the consequences of their actions.
What Is At Stake In Your Case?
Whether you have any of the commonly misdiagnosed cancers like breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer or prostate cancer or another type of cancer, doctors should not be making assumptions in your diagnosis. When a doctor or other medical staff is liable for your misdiagnosis, insurance companies may try to force you to take a lowball settlement so they can save money.
Instead of leaving money on the table, we can fight for you to see your compensation reflect the total cost of your misdiagnosis, including costs like:
- Lost income during recovery
- Current and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Relocation or renovation costs to accommodate any resulting disabilities
