Connecticut Cancer Malpractice Lawyers – Kocian Law Group
A cancer diagnosis can seem like the end of the world. But what happens if that diagnosis is false - or worse, if you are presented with a clean bill of health when you actually have a life-threatening disease?
Medical science has come a long way in the treatment of cancer. With proper intervention and treatment, we can often preserve life and quality of life despite cancer. The key here, however, is proper intervention. If you feel that you or a loved one has not received proper care for your medical problem, you may want to consult an attorney. At Kocian Law Group, we will help you obtain justice for any malpractice you have suffered due to negligence by medical professionals and help you recoup medical expenses due to improper treatment. We will help you quantify the pain and suffering caused by a misdiagnosis, an erroneous care recommendation, or improper treatment.
A missed or delayed diagnosis can be the difference between life and death. Even when a person survives, medical bills may increase. Painful, time consuming treatments may be required to stop the spread of cancer that could have been prevented entirely with a proper, timely diagnosis.
Some types of cancer that are commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked are:
- cervical cancer
- breast cancer
- prostate cancer
- ovarian cancer
- lung cancer
- skin cancer
Many of these types of cancer can be treated effectively if they are caught before they spread. The earlier cancer is caught, the less likely it is that you will need to endure extensive surgery and prolonged treatment. The American Cancer Society often repeats the mantra “early detection, early cure” for a reason. When your physician is caring for you, these concepts should be first and foremost in their minds for your best medical management.
