What to Know About Delayed Cancer Diagnosis Lawsuits

A delayed cancer diagnosis can result in tragedy for a patient. It’s no surprise that this is one of the biggest reasons why people file medical malpractice lawsuits in the United States. Even a few months can make a difference between being able to get appropriate, life saving care and being given months to live.

Defining Negligence in Delayed Cancer Diagnosis Cases

Proving negligence is one of the hardest things to do when it comes to medical malpractice. This is why so many of these cases don’t result in compensation. An attorney needs to know exactly what defines negligence and they have to have proof to support their cases.

In addition, another step must be taken. The attorney needs to show proof that if the proper diagnosis would have been made, a different, better outcome would have occurred. Delayed treatment can result in either delayed recovery or no recovery at all.
