Delay of Breast Cancer Treatment Due to Medical Malpractice
If your doctor acted in a negligent manner and treatment was delayed, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn what legal options could be available, contact a Cleveland medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
In order to prove that negligence was the cause of delayed treatment, you will need evidence that shows your doctor acted in a manner that was unreasonable. For instance, if another doctor under the same set of circumstances would have diagnosed breast cancer and your doctor didn’t, it may be a case of medical malpractice.
Treatment can also be delayed due to a misdiagnosis, ignoring test results or misinterpreting results. However, you also will need to show that as a result of negligence, it caused you to suffer serious injuries.
For example, if your cancer progressed to a point that could have been avoided, you might have a case if your doctor misdiagnosed the cancer. Also, if your condition was actually made worse by your doctor, it may be a circumstance of medical negligence.
Knowing when breast cancer screenings are recommended is important. If you believe your doctor was negligent, contact an attorney to discuss your case.
