At the Eichholz Law Firm, we understand how a doctor’s inability to diagnose cancer can change your life forever, but we can provide you with the ability to take back control of your life today. A determined medical malpractice lawyer with our firm can help you explore your legal options.
One of the most devastating errors in medical diagnosis occurs when a doctor fails to notice the presence of cancer. The chances of beating cancer increase significantly if the cancer is detected in its earlier stages.
The Effects of Cancer
More than 1,500 people die from cancer each day, making it one of the leading cause of death in the United States. Common forms of cancer found in patients include:
- Breast Cancer
- Lung cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Rectal Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Melanoma (skin cancer)
- Pancreatic Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Lymphoma (Cancer of the Lymphatic System)
In typical failure to diagnose cancer cases, a medical malpractice attorney works with medical experts to determine whether the cancer was tested for in a timely manner and properly diagnosed. If it is determined that the necessary steps to detect cancer were not taken in a proper and speedy fashion, an attorney can fight for the client’s right to pursue the compensation they deserve.
