Fighting For Boston Families For More Than A Decade

New Hampshire Cancer Malpractice Lawyer

Nothing can prepare a person for getting the difficult news that they have cancer. This vicious disease has affected countless individuals over time and left them, and their loved ones, reeling in the aftermath of what a diagnosis like this means. While learning that one has cancer can be disheartening, people put their trust into the medical professionals who are meant to care for them as they undergo treatment to fight off their cancer. Unfortunately, not all medical professionals uphold the duty of care owed to their patients suffering from cancer, and as a result, their negligence may cause further harm. 

Patients suffering from cancer who put their trust into a negligent doctor, nurse, or other medical professional should never have to fight for justice alone. The cancer malpractice lawyers at Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers are dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for their clients as they pursue the fair compensation they deserve.

How to Identify Malpractice in New Hampshire Cancer Cases

Being told that you have cancer is something that no one can ever prepare for. Patients suffering from cancer often undergo extensive treatments and testing that can take a serious toll on the body. In order to get through this difficult time, patients put a lot of trust into the doctors and other medical staff caring for them. However, if a medical professional acts negligently while caring for a cancer patient, they may be found liable for the injuries and losses they have caused as a result of their actions. 

Some of the most common examples of cancer malpractice in New Hampshire are as follows:

  • Improper diagnosis or treatment by a primary care physician or other medical personnel
  • Misinterpreted test results by a radiologist
  • Errors in laboratory tests
  • Hospital communication errors
  • Medical errors within the oncology department or elsewhere in the medical organization

It is important for your case that you are able to determine in what way the liable party was negligent and how their negligence led to your loss. To get help identifying key evidence for your cancer malpractice case, our experienced cancer malpractice lawyers may be able to help by conducting a full and thorough investigation. We will work tirelessly to provide you with the trusted legal counsel, experience, and skills needed to get you the fair compensation you deserve.

What Is New Hampshire’s Statute of Limitations for a Cancer Malpractice Case?

In the state of New Hampshire, medical malpractice claims, including those involving cancer,  must be filed within three years of the discovery of the negligence that led to an injury. Discovery is a legal term meaning that the three-year time limit does not begin until the patient discovers the malpractice that occurred while in the care of a medical professional like a doctor or nurse. This rule is in place to provide enough time for patients whose injuries may not be immediately obvious or have clear symptoms. 

If you are suffering due to the misdiagnosis, mistreatment, or any other form of negligence involving your cancer, it is crucial that you begin the process of filing your claim as soon as possible. While three years may seem like plenty of time, the claims process can take longer at certain points and disputes may arise. To ensure that the cancer malpractice claims process goes as smoothly as possible, retain the help of one of our New Hampshire cancer malpractice lawyers as soon as possible.
