A Late Diagnosis Can Have Dire Consequences

Cancer is a progressive disease, and without prompt diagnosis, can advance or even cause death. When medical professionals fail to make a timely diagnosis under circumstances when a reasonable doctor should have, they may be held responsible for the patient’s health consequences in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Holding Medical Professionals Responsible For Negligence

If a diagnosis is missed or delayed for too long, by the time the correct diagnosis is made it may be too late to start more conservative treatments that would have worked at an earlier stage. In severe cases, it may even be too late to save a patient’s life. This kind of medical negligence obviously has serious consequences for the patient and patient’s family. In New Jersey, the litigators at Piro Zinna Cifelli Paris & Genitempo LLC have the experience and the commitment to represent clients or families who are suffering as a result of a medical professional’s failure to make a timely diagnosis.

While it can be difficult to prove the exact extent disease of progression that may have been caused by a delayed cancer diagnosis or even a misdiagnosis, it is not impossible. Consult with one of our experienced medical malpractice lawyers, David M. Paris, Richard A. Grodeck and Daniel R. Bevere, to determine if you could have a successful case.
