Pursuing Legal Action When Your Delayed Cancer Diagnosis Has Hurt Your Treatment Options
Receiving a cancer diagnosis is frightening, but we are fortunate in the 21st century to have treatment options after early detection of cancers like:
- Breast cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Lung cancer
- A malignant brain tumor
However, time is of the essence with these and other cancers. Getting a prompt diagnosis from a licensed medical professional can make the difference between a less intrusive and more effective treatment plan (such as a lumpectomy) versus a more extensive and less promising one (such as radical surgery and/or chemotherapy).
Your Legal Options
If this has happened to you and you wonder why your doctor did not diagnose your cancer despite the warning signs, you may have the right to pursue compensation under a medical malpractice claim. However, hiring the right law firm is essential to getting the right compensation.
