Failure To Diagnose Cancer Malpractice
Providing Skillful Representation in Medical Misdiagnosis Cases
Mistakes made early in the development of a tumor can have devastating long-term effects that may be difficult or impossible to reverse. For this reason, it is critical to properly diagnose a malignant tumor before it grows and spreads.
An oncologist or physician has a duty to exercise all of his or her skills, abilities and training to properly diagnose life-threatening conditions such as an early-stage tumor. When the physician fails to do so, the cancer victim can claim compensation for financial losses, pain and suffering, and other losses.
At Garland, Samuel & Loeb, P.C., our mission is helping victims of negligence get fair compensation for their losses and suffering. Our medical malpractice attorneys have years of experience in this field, and we work diligently to get the best possible result for every client.

Failure to Diagnose Colon, Lung and Breast Cancer
Admittedly, diagnosing cancer can be difficult. However, if cancer is suspected or is a possibility, the physician should make every effort to determine whether a cancer or pre-cancerous condition is present. Some of the reasons why cancers are not properly diagnosed include:
- Failure to order a blood test, biopsy, endoscopy, MRI, or other diagnostic test
- Misinterpreting the results of a test
- Failure to inform the patient of the results of a test
- Failure to refer the patient to a specialist
When you retain our firm to represent you, we will make a full investigation of the circumstances of your case, including medical tests, physician consultations and other actions taken or not taken by your medical providers. We will work with specialists in appropriate medical disciplines in these investigations, who can provide insights into key issues, and if needed, compelling testimony at trial.
