Delayed Diagnosis of Cancer
Symptoms of cancer include headaches, dizziness, soreness, swollen lymph nodes, or pain. Because the symptoms can be general, many cancer victims are not properly diagnosed until it is too late. In most cases, a delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer results from a failure to order enough studies or testing. At Clark & Mitchell P.C., we are experienced in the complexities of cancer diagnosis and will help you investigate your case or claim in the event of a delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis.
Delayed Diagnosis, Misdiagnosis, and Late Stage Cancers
Some types of cancer can be difficult to detect. But in many cases there are symptoms and signs that indicate the need for further testing. Failure to discover a cancer and delayed diagnosis have the same result: a patient is not given enough time to treat the disease and is often given a diagnosis in a late stage where treatment becomes more complicated or impossible.Our firm will collect all medical documentation to thoroughly investigate your case. We will review your medical history, consult with experts, and evaluate the treatment and testing administered in your case. In the event that misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis has affected your future ability to get treated, we will aggressively pursue your case for compensation.
