When Breast Cancer Goes Undiagnosed
Medical technology makes possible the early diagnosis and treatment of many diseases that were once undetectable, including breast cancer. Sadly, technology alone cannot save lives. When doctors, radiologists and other medical professionals fail to recognize and act upon the warning signs of breast cancer, afflicted patients and their families suffer tremendous losses.
At Meagher & Meagher in White Plains, we are committed to helping victims of all types of medical negligence, including the failure to diagnose breast cancer.
Our attorneys have obtained numerous verdicts and settlements on behalf of victims of medical malpractice, including a $47.95 million award against multiple defendants found responsible for the failure to diagnose a spinal tumor. We are here to provide you with the knowledgeable guidance and passionate representation you need for this complex legal matter.
Uncovering Negligence In Complex Cancer Cases
Failure to diagnose breast cancer can result from a misread mammogram or other mistakes in the radiology lab, examination room and other medical settings. The failure to diagnose can lead to severe and permanent consequences for the patient. What might have been a relatively simple procedure may now require extensive surgery and even removal of breast tissue. Sadly, a diagnosis that is delayed for too long may result in wrongful death.
We have the experience and resources to handle the complex investigations these cases require. In pursuing a claim, we must demonstrate that cancer should have been detected and that a timely diagnosis would have had a significantly better outcome. To demonstrate these facts, we call upon leading experts in oncology and other fields. We leave no stone unturned as we help our clients seek justice and compensation for the many losses they have suffered.
