Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Serving Northwest Indiana
Breast cancer remains the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women and the second most common cause of cancer death. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer at some point in her life. One of the most effective ways to combat breast cancer is early detection. When a doctor fails to diagnose or misdiagnoses breast cancer, it can progress to a higher stage, resulting in a higher mortality rate.
The Northwest Indiana medical malpractice attorneys of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. are fully committed to protecting you when a doctor's failure to diagnose breast cancer causes you significant harm and increases the risks to your health.
We assist patients in all types of cases where a doctor's standard of care has fallen below acceptable standards, including cases of:
- Failure to diagnose a breast lump or other symptoms
- Incorrect interpretation of a mammogram
- Inadequate follow-up
- Failure to provide adequate treatment
- Unnecessary surgery causing cancer to spread
- Insufficient access to patient's medical history
- Lack of communication
Did Your Doctor Fail to Diagnose Breast Cancer? We Can Help.
If a doctor fails to diagnose your breast cancer to the detriment of your health, you do not have to fight alone. A Northwest Indiana medical malpractice lawyer at our firm can help you pursue legal remedies to cover many of your resulting costs, including lost income and medical bills. In many cases, we first attempt to reach a settlement with the doctor or hospital in order to help you quickly move on and concentrate on your health. If a settlement cannot be reached, mediation, arbitration, or filing a lawsuit are common alternatives.
In order to file a lawsuit against a negligent doctor or hospital, patients must first present evidence to the Indiana medical board for approval. Medical malpractice lawsuits involving failure to diagnose breast cancer also require the testimony of an expert, such as an oncologist, surgeon, or radiologist, on the standard of care and negligence of your doctor. These cases are quite complex, and should not be pursued without the help of experienced attorneys like the medical malpractice lawyers of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C., who understand the complicated web of laws that make up medical malpractice litigation.
