Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer Patient Attorney
Time is an important key when it comes to cancer patients, especially breast cancer patients because the sooner the patient receives treatment, the more likely they are to become a survivor of breast cancer. When a doctor fails to recognize that the woman has breast cancer, or doesn’t pay mind to the woman’s symptoms, then it could be a risk to the woman’s life. Cancers grow fast and tend to spread in other places. If the woman would receive adequate treatment in a timely manner, then she increases her chances of survival.
A delay or a miss in diagnosing cancer patients is part of Percy Martinez law firm specialties. They have victoriously provided these victims with everything that was owed to them, and their families. Give them a call (305) 529-0001, and learn about what steps to take next.
Justice is due to those who fell at the hands of this medical malpractice. Seeking legal assistance may not be what comes to the mind of the victim, or their family after the incident occurred, but it is a way to rid all financial burdens that the damage has caused. The amount of damages the injured person would receive is dependent on what degree was the negligence, and the extensive harms done to the victim over time. They may be eligible for:
- Damages that can be numerically counted such as, medical expenses, loss of wages, loss of work, and other fees.
- Damages that cannot be numerically counted such as, loss of affiliations, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and more.
How Does a Doctor Miss the Signs?
This kind of negligence is grave because the key factor in combating cancer is time. The earlier the detection, the most likely that the patient will have enough time to get treated. But how does the doctor fail to see that it is breast cancer? There are a few reasons as to why a doctor would miss the diagnosis, such as:
- Not performing the correct tests like a mammogram
- Not detecting the symptoms and failing to schedule tests
- Not listening to the patients concerns and requests
- Misinterpretation of test results
- Not speaking with the patient about their test results as soon as possible
