Cancer Misdiagnoses Fighting For You Like Family

Cancer Misdiagnoses Lawyers in Maryland

A Misdiagnosis Can Be a Fatal One

Misdiagnosis of cancer—or a complete failure to diagnose cancer—can deny a patient of the critical medical treatment they deserve. Early detection of cancer is essential to successful treatment, higher survival rates, and decreased costs of medical bills for cancer patients.

If a doctor’s wrongful diagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer results in incorrect treatment, delayed treatment, or no treatment at all, this can affect a patient’s ability to recover from the disease, if at all.

In cancer cases, physicians can be deemed negligent in instances such as the following:

  • Failing to identify obvious indications of cancer during an examination
  • Misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or no diagnosis when cancer is in fact present
  • Not ordering proper tests, including x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, or a biopsy
  • Failing to properly evaluate test results
  • No follow-up with the patient

Cancer is a common medical malpractice claim and unquestionably requires an experienced attorney. Potter Burnett Law has demonstrated experience and success in malpractice litigation.
