Florida Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers
Have you or a loved one been the victim of a cancer misdiagnosis? You might be surprised to learn how often cancer is misdiagnosed. According to one study published in the journal Cancer, up to 12% of all cancer cases are initially wrongly diagnosed.

Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawsuits
When a cancer misdiagnosis occurs, it is almost always preventable. In many cases, fatal misdiagnosis occurs when medical professionals do not adhere to established treatment protocols. In other cases, a malignant cancer may be improperly interpreted or misgraded. Cancer misdiagnosis can also occur when lab tests are misread, or when a doctor fails to follow up with a patient or notify them of their test results. Without an experienced personal injury attorney on your side, it may be difficult for you to learn why your cancer was wrongly diagnosed. Our cancer misdiagnosis lawyers will work with top medical experts to conduct a thorough investigation of your case to find out exactly what went wrong.
