Misdiagnosed Breast Cancer

Misdiagnosed Breast Cancer

When breast cancer is misdiagnosed, it can metastasize, leading to increased illness and suffering. In some instances, the cancer may advance to an untreatable stage. If you or a family member has suffered due to a delayed breast cancer diagnosis, it is time to seek the counsel of a skilled lawyer.

At Cravens & Noll, in Richmond, Virginia, our lawyers have experience representing clients in a broad range of medical malpractice cases, including misdiagnosed breast cancer. When people suffer illness due to the negligent actions of a medical professional, we are here to guide them through the legal system and help recover the compensation they deserve.

Common Causes of Delayed Diagnosis

A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of breast cancer can result from a variety of actions:

  • Failure to take a complete medical history, thus missing potential warning signs
  • Failure to order necessary medical tests
  • Failure to interpret tests correctly
  • Failure to take a patient’s symptoms seriously

Every doctor can miss signs of cancer if the symptoms do not present themselves in their entirety. Missing a diagnosis is not in itself a cause for a medical malpractice claim. However, if a similar doctor in similar circumstances would have diagnosed the disease, the negligent doctor needs to be held responsible.

Our firm offers case evaluations. We will take the time to learn about the facts of your case and determine whether pursuing a claim is in your best interests. If we do pursue a medical malpractice claim, you can be sure that we will fight aggressively on your behalf. We always prepare misdiagnosis cancer cases for trial so that insurance companies know we are serious about recovering the maximum damages possible.
