CANCER MISDIAGNOSIS LAWYER NYC

Failure To Diagnose Cancer

At Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP, our cancer misdiagnosis lawyers in NYC have been representing victims of cancer misdiagnoses for over 60 years. We realize the harm that can be caused by a doctor's misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer. As a result, our goal is to help ease the financial burden for patients who were caused unnecessary injury due to a doctor’s negligence.

When an individual is sick, they shouldn't have to worry about getting the appropriate treatment from their doctor. Unfortunately, doctors are far from perfect, and have been known to misdiagnose or fail to diagnose certain illnesses, including different types of cancers. When a doctor misdiagnoses or fails to diagnose cancer, the effects on the patient can be devastating. A cancer misdiagnosis can exacerbate an existing injury or sickness. In some cases, the failure to diagnose cancer can result in the patient's death. Our cancer misdiagnosis lawyers fight for victims of cancer misdiagnoses to recover the compensation they so rightly deserve.

What Types Of Cancer Misdiagnosis Cases Do You Handle?

Our attorneys have represented victims of many different types of cancer misdiagnoses, including:

When Can Doctors Be Found Liable For A Misdiagnosis Or Failure To Diagnose Cancer?

Doctors have an obligation to follow certain protocols when diagnosing a patient. When doctors fail to follow the accepted process of the medical community and misdiagnose a patient, they can be found liable for any additional damage that occurs. Doctors can be found liable if they did any of the following and further injury or sickness occurred:

Failed To Order The Proper Tests: A physician must order the proper tests for all symptoms their patients experience. If a patient suffers damages as a result of the physician’s failure to order the proper tests, they may have grounds for a lawsuit.

The Doctor Failed To Properly Interpret Test Results: If a doctor fails to properly interpret test results, and this leads to a failure to diagnose cancer, then the doctor may be liable. In order to prove negligence in this case, it must be shown that another doctor in the same field would have made an accurate diagnosis upon interpreting the test results.

The Doctor Misdiagnosed An Illness Or Injury: Physicians may be found liable if they misdiagnose cancer as a less serious illness. For instance, if a doctor misdiagnoses chest pain and coughing as pneumonia, when in fact the patient has lung cancer, they may be liable.
