Failure to
Diagnose Cancer

Experienced Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorneys Serving West Virginia

A doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer can occur for a number of reasons. A misread X-ray, ignored symptoms and errors in lab work can all result in the false sense of relief. If your doctor or oncologist failed to properly diagnose cancer and allow you to receive treatment as quickly as possible, a personal injury lawyer can help by filing a lawsuit for compensation.

Greene Ketchum lawyers understand the devastating effects that a misdiagnosis can have on you and your family. We work to get compensation for the medical error and recoup the losses from tests or unnecessary procedures resulting from the failure to diagnosis your cancer. We represent families who have lost a loved one to cancer by filing a wrongful death suit.

We also represent clients who received a false positive cancer diagnosis and work to obtain compensation for the unnecessary emotional distress. Contact Huntington, West Virginia, personal injury lawyers to schedule your initial consultation today.

Misdiagnosed Cancer Can Lead To Greater Complications

Some cancers are hard to detect, but if your misdiagnosis was the result of doctor or hospital negligence, we can help you. We represent clients suffering from the following types of cancer:

  • Skin cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Cervical cancer

A cancer misdiagnosis as a result of medical malpractice can result in serious, even fatal consequences. A delay in treatment may lead to the growth of a tumor, spread of the cancer, a delay in chemotherapy or radiation and excessive tests.

An attorney will work with you to determine the medical expenses that were the result of the medical malpractice to get you the money you are entitled to receive. We understand that it won’t correct the error, but going after the doctor or hospital who committed the error can help you focus on your recovery rather than worrying about your medical expenses.
