Unquestionably breast cancer is a serious diagnosis in any circumstance. That said, the chance of survival is greatly increased if an early and correct diagnosis is reached. If a medical professional mismanages records, misreads a report or otherwise does not accurately diagnose when the possibility is present, the result can be deadly. It is no stretch to say that correct diagnosis in these cases is a life and death scenario.
In a best-case scenario, a late diagnosis will result in more tissue loss, invasive procedures, and aggressive chemotherapy and radiation. If you or a loved one went in to get diagnosed and believe your doctor was negligent in his diagnosis of breast cancer, you may be entitled to significant compensation. We are here for you.
