Delayed Diagnosis Means Delayed Cure
Modern medicine has made many forms of cancer curable. Even those forms of cancer that are more challenging to cure can be managed with proper treatment. Of course, all of this depends on a doctor detecting and diagnosing the cancer. Failure to diagnose in a timely manner can cause a curable cancer to become incurable or a manageable cancer to become unmanageable. Doctors can be held accountable for cancer misdiagnosis when that failure reasonably caused harm to the patient .
At Blue + Blue Law in Columbus, our attorneys stand up for the rights of cancer victims who have lost a chance at life because of a doctor's failure to diagnose. We have more than 64 years of experience on our side, experience that we use to get justice and compensation for victims of malpractice.
“Our clients ask, Why wasn't diagnosis and treatment instituted earlier? Especially in cases of breast cancer or colorectal cancer, which should be diagnosed early and successfully treated. There is a very short statute of limitations, and it is important for you to contact us as soon as possible.”
- Jason A. Blue.
Take Advantage of Your Seventh Amendment Right to Trial By Jury
Almost uniformly, victims of misdiagnosis and other forms of medical malpractice will be offered drastically insufficient settlements. These settlements do not have to be accepted. The matter can be taken to the courtroom. Our lawyers are willing to take this step in order to see that you get the justice and compensation you deserve.
Common examples of failure to diagnose cancer that our lawyers have handled include:
- Breast cancer misdiagnosis
- Prostate cancer misdiagnosis
- Lung cancer misdiagnosis
If you or a loved one suffers from this type of cancer and you believe your doctor missed the opportunity to catch the problem at an earlier stage, our Ohio attorneys want to help you.
