Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer Attorney in NYC
The failure of a doctor to diagnose breast cancer is devastating. Time is of the essence when it comes to treating cancer and breast cancer is no exception. Over time, a cancer is harder to treat. Unfortunately, the failure to diagnose breast cancer continues to be a regular form of medical negligence. Some signs that medical negligence led to a failure to diagnose breast cancer includes not ordering the proper tests, not heeding the patient’s complaints, a failure to properly read test results, and a delay in referring a patient to specialists. If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and believe that another doctor missed the signs or ignored proper protocol, contact Mark L. Bodner, P.C.
Consequences of failing to diagnose breast cancer
A patient’s life often depends on how early the diagnosis of breast cancer is made. A failure to diagnose breast cancer in a timely manner can have devastating effects, including a diminished quality of life, the participation of more invasive procedures and even death. The victim and their family may have to adapt to a new way of living, including a life with overwhelming medical bills, a busy schedule of procedures, and the lost wages of someone the family depends on. Numerous medical professionals may be needed to assist in the victim’s recovery and a possible struggle with permanent disability, chronic pain and suffering. In cases where the victim dies, the family is left with the loss of a loved one as well as the loss of financial support, medical expenses, loss of inheritance, funeral expenses and if children are involved, the loss of nurture and guidance from their deceased parent. A competent medical malpractice lawyer can help you fight for your rights to obtain financial compensation.
