Our ovarian cancer misdiagnosis lawyers in New York understand that for many female reproductive cancers, early diagnosis is key to an effective treatment and the best possible outcome. Your chances of surviving cervical or ovarian cancer increase the earlier your doctor is able to detect and diagnose your condition accurately. However, if your doctor misses key signs of cancer in the reproductive system, treatment options become more aggressive, invasive and drastic.
If you feel you have been misdiagnosed, visit another professional for a second medical opinion and call our lawyers immediately. In a situation where a medical mistake led to the spread of your cancer, you may need to hold your medical care providers accountable for their oversight. Your doctor may have made an error, thus failing to diagnose you promptly with your condition. Whether due to incompetence or general negligence, our firm can help you identify the reasons and help you seek out a just legal remedy.
