Causes of Delayed Cancer Diagnosis or Misdiagnosis
Our Queens misdiagnosis attorneys have helped clients who have suffered as a result of misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis caused by:
- Misreading or misinterpreting a mammogram, X-ray or MRI
- Failing to perform a timely biopsy on questionable tissue
- Failing to order a mammogram
- Treating the symptoms without exploring the cause of the symptom
Individuals diagnosed with cancer often have to endure long-term care and costly medical treatment. When breast cancer and other forms of cancer are misdiagnosed, treatment plans often become even more aggressive. You should be able to focus on fighting the cancer without worrying how your treatment will be covered.
Our NYC medical malpractice attorneys consult health care professionals to pursue a full financial recovery for accident victims. This includes past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and damages for pain and suffering. We will take every measure possible to help you assert your legal rights to obtain the compensation you are entitled.
