Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose Cancer

Did Your Doctor Fail to Diagnose Your Cancer?

It happens too often, a person goes to the doctor because something doesn't feel quite right, only to be sent away with assurances that everything is fine. Several months of invaluable treatment time may pass before the cancer is diagnosed correctly. In other cases, the doctor may tell an elderly person that their cancer is untreatable or not worth treating properly because of the patient's age. Failure to diagnose cancer is a serious act of negligence whose impact cannot be overstated.

No Attorneys Fees Unless You Win

Watson & Carroll PC LLO believes that the reason people go to the doctor is because of their specialized knowledge. If a general doctor or specialist fails to diagnose cancer or another medical condition correctly and in a timely manner, the medical professional may have failed to meet their legal responsibility. Our firm has a reputation for making the complex medical issues simple for a jury to understand.

"We have over three decades of combined experience fighting on behalf of people who are ignored or improperly diagnosed and treated by doctors. The law is clear: The doctor has to think EVERY time a patient comes in for an office visit. Our law firm uses the law to hold medical specialists and professionals financially accountable for providing the services they are licensed to provide."
