Experienced Ohio Attorneys Helping Victims of Cancer Diagnosis Errors
For many types of cancer, timely and accurate diagnosis can mean the difference between remission and a successful recovery or a wrongful death. When cancer becomes more difficult to treat or leads to a premature death due the negligence of a doctor, victims and their families may have a valid claim for damages. From our main office in Columbus, Ohio, The Donahey Law Firm has represented clients throughout the state in these and other types of medical malpractice cases and other personal injury matters for 40 years.
If you suffer from misdiagnosed cancer, or a family member has suffered or died due to a failure to diagnose cancer, contact our Ohio failure to diagnose cancer lawyers to discuss your case. We are prepared to assist clients in cases of failure to diagnose many types of cancer, including:
- Breast cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Colon cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Lung cancer
- Brain tumors/cancer
- Skin cancer/melanoma
With breast cancer in particular, it is widely known and promoted that detecting the cancer early improves a woman's chances for a complete recovery. Unfortunately, delays and errors by doctors and technicians can lead to a failure to diagnose and treat this or other kinds of cancer in a timely manner. The consequences for victims and their families can range from large, unplanned medical bills; lost wages; years of painful treatment; and a significant loss in their quality of life, or worse, the death of a patient.
The attorneys at The Donahey Law Firm have the experience to effectively investigate these types of medical malpractice cases. We know how to uncover evidence that shows how a client's life-threatening cancer may have been the result of misread medical images or films, lab results and other screening procedures. We urge individuals and families to seek legal counsel before speaking to any representative of the hospital or their insurance carrier. Your health has already been compromised once by negligence. We can help you hold them accountable and recover the proper restitution for your pain and suffering.
