Today, nearly every family in the United States has been affected by cancer in some way. When a person is told they have cancer, life as they know it may be altered in the blink of an eye. Because this disease is so serious, patients put all their trust in the doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who will help them fight for remission. However, when medical professionals act negligently and a patient is misdiagnosed, they may suffer serious losses as a result.

How Can Your Lawyer Help With Your Cancer Misdiagnosis Claim?

A cancer misdiagnosis can have severe repercussions for the patients affected by this act of negligence. Patients who receive a cancer misdiagnosis may suffer serious losses in addition to their injuries. As a result, it is important that you retain the help of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who has helped clients who have been victims of a cancer misdiagnosis. A medical malpractice lawyer can help you pursue justice for your claim by providing the following benefits:

  • They can help you obtain all of the relevant medical records
  • They can evaluate whether these records show that your cancer was present at the time of your misdiagnosis
  • They can help you provide evidence that the doctor’s actions rose to the level of medical malpractice

Damages You Can Pursue After a Cancer Misdiagnosis

If you were a victim of a cancer misdiagnosis, you may be owed compensation for any losses you have suffered as a result. Although it is your legal right to file a medical malpractice claim, the insurance companies may try to lowball you and get away with offering you the lowest possible amount for your claim. However, when you work with a trusted medical malpractice lawyer, they can use their experience to negotiate a fair settlement amount. 

The damages you may be eligible to collect after you have suffered from a cancer misdiagnosis are as follows:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death

If you are unsure what damages you may be eligible to collect, your medical malpractice lawyer may be able to help by going over the specific details of your claim. To ensure you can pursue justice for the losses you have suffered as a result of a cancer misdiagnosis, you must begin the medical malpractice claims process as soon as possible.
