The U.S. National Cancer Institute estimates that almost 2 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer this year, and more than 600,000 will lose their lives to this harrowing disease.

It is due to statistics like these that receiving a positive cancer diagnosis is a thought most of us dread. However, receiving a negative diagnosis when we, in fact, have cancer, can be just as deadly.

If you've been misdiagnosed with cancer, or if your doctor failed to diagnose your cancer, then you may have grounds for a legal claim. Contact our experienced medical malpractice lawyers today to learn more about the powerful legal avenues for compensation at your disposal.

Cancer Malpractice Cases

When a medical professional such as a doctor or a nurse does not follow standard procedures and ends up hurting their patient, a medical malpractice claim may be filed by the injured patient in an attempt to hold them accountable for such negligence.

When the health condition in question is not grave and the injury suffered by the patient is not severe, then pursuing a malpractice claim may not be necessary or worthwhile. Yet, when it comes to a disease as lethal as cancer, the amount of time between diagnosis and the beginning of treatment can make the difference between life and death. Unfortunately, modern treatments for cancer such as chemotherapy are also quite harsh on the body, so receiving this treatment when it is not needed can also prove deadly.

Cancer misdiagnosis, in one way or another, costs lives. If you or a loved one were misdiagnosed, you have the right and our experienced legal team at your disposal to pursue compensation in a cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit.

Compensation in Malpractice Cancer Lawsuits

When you file a lawsuit for cancer misdiagnosis, your aim is to be compensated for the damages caused by negligence on behalf of your physician.

Naturally, any related medical expenses should be covered by this compensation; this can include past surgical procedures, past treatments (such as chemo), and any medications you were prescribed. It may also include the medical care required to help you recover from the injuries caused by medical negligence, and all expenses associated with that often prolonged process.

Moreover, you may also seek to be compensated for the physical and emotional pain and suffering that the entire experience indubitably caused you. Aggressive cancer treatments are just that, aggressive. They are intended to kill cancer at its core but can also cause the necrosis of healthy tissues and bodily systems. All of these damages are sure to cause pain to the patient, pain which may remain permanently but for which they may be substantially compensated.

Finally, any income or potential wages that you may have lost by undergoing treatment may also form part of your compensation, though it will depend on the case and how aggressively your attorney is willing to fight for every bit of compensation you deserve.
