The legal team at the Porter Law Group enjoys the benefits of decades of experience prosecuting medical malpractice cases, and we routinely hold physicians accountable for failing to take steps to diagnose cancer in a timely manner. We will hold doctors accountable if they have denied our clients the benefit of available treatments, longer survival, and in many cases, a cure. Learning you have cancer is difficult enough. But learning you were denied the opportunity for a treatment or cure because your doctor committed malpractice is a fate that no person should have to endure. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a late stage cancer and you have questions about whether it should have been diagnosed earlier, we can help you get answers.

Experienced Cancer Lawyers

Medical malpractice cases involving delayed cancer diagnoses routinely involve certain types of cancer that can and should be discovered through routine medical screening/testing (as recommended by many authoritative medical organizations such as the American Cancer Society). The American Cancer Society publishes clear guidelines for physicians to follow for the early detection and treatment of:

You should call us if you or a loved one has been the victim of a late cancer diagnosis because your doctor:

  • Failed to order routine screening or testing prior to your diagnosis;
  • Ordered tests but never shared the results with you;
  • Ordered a test that was never performed;
  • Ignored your symptoms;
  • Failed to refer you to an appropriate specialist (e.g., gastroenterologist, gynecologist, endocrinologist, pulmonologist, urologist or dermatologist); or
  • Failed to learn or consider your medical or family history.

Denying a patient the benefit of well-established screening and testing protocols constitutes gross medical malpractice in many cases. We rely upon some of the most-qualified medical experts to thoroughly review and investigate your case, and our track record of success proves that our approach works. We have obtained justice for many individuals whose cancer should have been discovered earlier, when it was treatable.

We know that a fatal or debilitating cancer, that could have been diagnosed earlier, can have a devastating effect on a person and his/her family. If you or a loved one has been injured by this kind of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation for damages including:

  • Past & future loss of income or earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of spousal services
  • Past & future medical expenses
  • Physical and/or mental impairment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Wrongful death

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, and you have lost the opportunity to benefit from available treatments, call the Porter Law Group at 833-888-LATE, or email us at info@nycancerlawyers.com
