California Delayed Diagnosis Attorney

A doctor must use care in diagnosing your illness in order for the appropriate treatment to be prescribed without undue delay. Missed symptoms and warning signs mean you are not being treated for your illness. A delay in diagnosis can mean that it is too late for effective treatment or that your only option is to have extensive and painful treatment that would not have been needed had they found the cancer or disease earlier.

We handle claims involving the failure to diagnose, or the misdiagnosis of, different types of cancer and illness, including:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Melanoma (deadly skin cancer)
  • Lung cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Colon cancer

Our experience with cases involving delayed diagnosis and failure to diagnose is used to the benefit of each of our clients as we help them obtain answers to these and other tough questions. We strive to get these answers not only to help our clients better understand their options, but also because we care about our clients and want to do everything we can to make them whole again through information, compensation, or whatever else we can provide.
