Lake County Failure To Diagnose Cancer Lawyer

Lake County Attorneys Holding Doctors Accountable for Cancer Misdiagnosis

A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating. Even more devastating, perhaps, is being diagnosed too late to seek treatment. In its early stages, cancer can often be beaten. However, the longer your doctor fails to diagnose your cancer, the less of a chance you have of a positive prognosis.

If your doctor failed to diagnose your cancer, limiting invaluable treatment options, or you have lost a loved one due to a medical professional's negligence, you may have legal options.

Holding Negligent Doctors Accountable

Since 1985, the Lake County area attorneys at Salvi & Maher, LLC, have helped families impacted by a physician's failure to promptly diagnose cancer. Medical malpractice like this should not go unpunished. Let us help you hold doctors and hospitals accountable for their mistakes. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced lawyer.

Discovering the Error

Failure to diagnose cancer can occur in a variety of ways. A doctor may misdiagnose the condition, writing off pain as coming from some other cause. A tumor could be missed in a screening or mammogram, or misidentified as a cyst. A physician may simply fail to respond to a patient's complaints, assuming that common symptoms like fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath or nausea are all signs of age or a hectic lifestyle. Our firm strives to help those affected by the prolonged diagnosis of:

  • Esophageal cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Skin cancer (Melanoma)
  • Breast cancer
  • Brain cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Cervical cancer

We have the experience to effectively investigate medical malpractice cases involving failure to diagnose cancer. We can often uncover evidence that proves a now life-threatening case of cancer could have been detected and treated much earlier.

If you or a family member has become the victim of medical negligence involving the failure to diagnose cancer, contact Salvi & Maher to arrange a consultation at any of our three Lake County, Illinois, area office locations.
