Failure To Diagnose Cancer Protecting Your Rights Throughout Florida

Failure to Diagnose Cancer Attorneys in Miami

Failure to diagnose is a serious medical error that can injure and kill patients. Although the law does not expect physicians to make correct and accurate diagnoses every time, it does expect them to follow certain protocols when diagnosing a condition. Failure to fulfill the accepted standards of care in the medical industry, resulting in failure to diagnose cancer or another serious disease, is medical malpractice.

If you or someone you love is the victim of a failure to diagnose error, contact our law firm by calling (305) 638-4143. for a free case review in Miami, Florida.

The Danger of Failure to Diagnose Cancer or Diseases

Failures to diagnose cancer, diagnostic errors, false positives or negatives, delayed diagnosis, or misdiagnosis are all reasons to contact an attorney. These are serious medical mistakes that often stem from acts of negligence, such as skipping steps during a diagnosis or ignoring patient complaints. Failing to diagnose a time-sensitive disease such as cancer can delay life-saving treatment for the patient. This, in turn, can reduce the patient’s odds of survival, and even result in wrongful death.

Each year, 80,000 to 160,000 patients suffer significant permanent injuries or wrongful death because of misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, according to John Hopkins Medicine research.

Diagnosis errors are surprisingly common. Had these patients seen reasonably careful and prudent physicians, they may have avoided their injuries. If you believe a negligent physician caused or contributed to your current injuries or illness due to failure to diagnose cancer, contact our lawyers. You deserve aggressive legal representation as a victim.

Who Is Liable?

The liable party will be the person or facility responsible for the proximate cause of your damages. The “proximate” cause is the main driving force of your incident, such as the misreading of lab results or a mix up of patient files.

The person responsible for the proximate cause will be liable for your damages. Liable parties may include:

  • The diagnosing physician
  • The lab test analyst
  • The nurse collecting test samples
  • The hospital or healthcare facility

If your case against the responsible party is successful, you and your family could receive restitution for your related medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, wrongful death damages, and punitive damages. You might be eligible for a multimillion-dollar settlement or verdict depending on your losses.
