Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers in the New York Metro Area
2019 Medical Malpractice Attorney of the year
We Are Highly Experienced With Cancer Misdiagnosis Cases
Cancer is a terrifying thought. It is often the thing we most fear being told by a doctor. But if we have cancer, the key to the best chance for survival is early diagnosis and treatment. In fact, with timely diagnosis, many cancers have over a 90% survival rate.
Unfortunately the diagnosis of cancer is sometimes delayed through medical negligence. Routine screening tests, such as mammogram and breast ultrasound, colonoscopy, pap smears, and lung cancer screening CT scans, are sometimes not ordered by doctors when they should be. Symptoms of possible cancers are sometimes not taken seriously by the medical professionals, and referrals to specialists for these symptoms are sometimes delayed.
If you or your loved one was not diagnosed with cancer in time, you may have to face terrible suffering, costs and possibly even death. This is a tragedy that deserves appropriate compensation.
The Law Offices of Joseph M. Lichtenstein P.C. has litigated numerous cases involving the failure to timely diagnose cancers of all kinds, including breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, cervical cancer, and many others. If you or your loved one did not learn you had cancer until it was advanced because of medical negligence, we can tell you if you have a case. Call us today.
