Failure to Diagnose Medical Malpractice

Due to improvements in cancer treatment, early diagnosis can now lead to successful treatment of many types of cancer. Unfortunately, if the cancer is not diagnosed until it reaches a late stage, the prognosis is not as positive.

At the law firm of Steinberg Goodman & Kalish in Chicago, we represent patients and their families in cases where cancer was not diagnosed early enough due to medical errors or negligence. Our attorneys have obtained multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts for individuals and families in medical malpractice cases.

Should My Cancer Have Been Diagnosed Earlier?

In some cases, there is nothing your doctor could have done to diagnose your cancer at an earlier stage. However, if your doctor failed to diagnose your cancer despite observable symptoms, did not order appropriate tests, or failed to follow up on lab test results, you may have a case of medical malpractice against your provider.

While not all forms of cancer may be curable even if discovered at an early stage, some cancers are highly curable if they are diagnosed and treated early enough, including:

  • Breast cancer
  • Skin cancer or melanoma
  • Colorectal cancer

Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and determine if your medical providers did everything they should have done to give you a chance to win your fight against cancer.
