Failure to Diagnose Colon Cancer

Failure to Diagnose Colon Cancer

Sometimes, doctors misdiagnose their patients even when all of the signs and symptoms point to colon cancer. If you were recently diagnosed with colon cancer, and you think your doctor should have diagnosed your colon cancer much sooner, you can seek compensation for failure to diagnose. Failure to diagnose a condition or disease is a form of medical malpractice.

Under Pennsylvania law, victims of medical malpractice can hold their doctors or other health care professionals accountable for their actions and failures by filing lawsuits that seek compensation for damages related to incidents of medical malpractice.

Learning that you or a loved one has cancer is devastating, regardless of how early you catch it, but knowing that you would have endured less pain and suffering and had an easier path to recovery had your doctor diagnosed you correctly compounds the devastation. The compassionate medical malpractice attorneys at The Levin Firm Personal Injury Lawyers are here to help you and your family through this challenging time.
