Did a Doctor Fail to Diagnose Cancer, a Heart Condition or Other Illness?
Most serious diseases and health conditions must be detected early in order to maximize the patient's chances of recovery. Sadly, many physicians and other medical professionals fail to diagnose or misdiagnose breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, heart conditions and other potentially life-threatening health issues. When a doctor's negligence leads to a patient's unnecessary suffering or even death, it may be considered medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice victims may be eligible to recover compensation for past and future medical bills, loss of earnings, pain and suffering and other damages. Such lawsuits are complex, often requiring expert witnesses and medical knowledge. However, at Block O'Toole & Murphy, we are well equipped to handle the complexity.
