Misdiagnosis of Cancer Lawsuit Attorney
Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Law Firm
Failure to diagnose or treat a medical condition properly often results in considerable long-term harm to patients. In fact a doctor's failure to diagnose and treat a serious medical condition such as cancer can result in a preventable death. At Fell & Spalding, we represent clients seeking damages in medical malpractice lawsuits. Failure to properly diagnose and treat a serious medical condition is one of the most frequent types of medical malpractice cases we handle.
Failure to diagnose a serious medical condition often has devastating effects. Contact the medical malpractice attorneys at Fell & Spalding to discuss whether you have a claim. We know that not every bad medical outcome is the result of negligence. We investigate deeply into the medical history to determine whether you did, in fact, suffer injury or harm as a result of your doctor misdiagnosing the condition.
How do we determine whether you have a claim?
One of the most important things we must determine during our investigation of your claim is when the disease took effect in the patient's body, and when a doctor should have been aware of it. Our lawyers use professional, medical, and technical resources to determine the likelihood that a trained doctor or specialist should have been able to recognize and treat the disease in a timely manner. Medical research has given us timelines of disease progression, and we can work backward to assess whether your healthcare provider should have been able to act. We handle every part of your claim, from investigation through subpoenas of records, to final negotiations or jury trial.
