Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer
Medical Malpractice Lawyers in New York City
Medical treatment is time-sensitive, particularly when it comes to life-threatening
diseases such as cancer. Each passing point in time marks a missed opportunity
to properly diagnose the condition and to apply an appropriate course
of treatment. Once the cancer has finally been properly diagnosed, the
range of possible treatment options can narrow, and the patient's
chances of recovery may face daunting or impossible odds.
At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we provide vigorous representation in cases
involving failure to diagnose breast cancer and other
types of medical malpractice. Our attorneys carefully investigate each case to determine how the treatment
provided differed from the acceptable standard of care. We obtain answers
as to what the medical practitioners should have done, providing closure
and a sense of justice for cancer sufferers and their families. For skillful
advocacy in a medical negligence case, turn to Sullivan & Brill, LLP.
With the help of leading cancer specialists, we will conduct a thorough
investigation of all aspects of your case, asking questions such as these:
- Did the general practitioner or examining physician fail to refer the patient?
- Did the laboratory make an error when analyzing a biopsy sample?
- Did an oncologist misinterpret a test result or make an erroneous diagnosis?
