Missed diagnosis and delayed treatments are serious issues

In the previous blog post, we discussed how important it is for a person who has breast cancer to receive an early diagnosis and quick treatment. If you recall, delaying chemotherapy after surgery for longer than 90 days lead to a sharp decline in survival. That is harrowing, but it is far from the only time when prompt diagnosis and treatment can mean the difference between survival and death.

We know that nobody thinks that a missed diagnosis or delay in getting treatment is what is going to eventually end their life. In the case of many cancers, heart disease, stroke, and other life-threatening conditions, seemingly short delays can cause massive issues. That shouldn't ever happen because a medical professional didn't handle the situation properly.

If you suffered any type of harm because your condition wasn't diagnosed properly or because you didn't get the treatments necessary fast enough, we can help you to explore your options for seeking compensation. This won't take the pain and suffering away, but it can help you to hold the medical professional liable for what you are going through. Seeking compensation can also pave the way for you to get the care and help you need as you learn to cope with the harm you have suffered.

Medical errors, including failure to diagnose serious conditions in a timely manner, can affect entire families. Your family might be dealing with the changes in your abilities. In extreme cases, families are left having to learn to live without a loved one. We can help you to take action to fight back against these types of errors.
