Chicago Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney
Patients and their loved ones trust doctors to correctly and promptly diagnose and treat serious illnesses, including cancers. When a medical provider fails to properly diagnose a malignancy according to accepted standards of care, patients and their families can sue for damages. This is the meaning of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Certain cancers can be detected through regular medical exams and treated successfully when caught early. Colon cancer and cervical cancer, in particular, are generally slow-growing and need not be fatal. If you or a loved one obtained regular medical exams but was diagnosed with a preventable later-stage cancer, you may have a medical malpractice case.
