Rolling Meadows Medical Malpractice Attorney: Failure to Diagnose Cancer
Cancer was once thought of as a death sentence. Thanks to considerable advances in medical science, many patients with cancer may now lead long and satisfying lives. But the key to effectively treating cancer is early detection.
Fortunately, doctors now have effective protocols and diagnostic techniques that can help them detect when patients have cancer at a much earlier time than was possible in the past. Even the best protocols and diagnostic tools are meaningless, however, if doctors, nurses and medical staff fail to perform their duties with a high degree of competence and care.
If you believe that medical negligence has resulted in a delayed diagnosis of cancer for you or a loved one, contact an experienced medical malpractice lawyer at SAM LAW OFFICE, LLC. We handle a wide range of failure to diagnose cancer claims, including:
