Denver Medical Malpractice Lawyers for Cancer Misdiagnosis
Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be devastating. Regardless of the type of cancer, and regardless of the prognosis, finding out that you have cancer is a moment that no one ever expects, and it is one that no one ever forgets.
But, even worse than being diagnosed with cancer is finding out that your disease was previously misdiagnosed. If your doctor had identified the symptoms and initiated treatment sooner, perhaps you would not be facing the uphill battle you are facing today. Perhaps you could have avoided surgery. Perhaps you could have avoided the need for chemotherapy. Perhaps you could have escaped the pain and suffering that now play a role in virtually every aspect of your daily life.
Misdiagnosis of cancer is alarmingly common. Tens of thousands of patients receive cancer misdiagnoses every year; and, according to Johns Hopkins Hospital, one out of every 71 cases of cancer is misdiagnosed. At Levine Law, we provide legal representation for patients and families who are suffering from cancer misdiagnoses in the Denver, CO area. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer that you believe may have previously been misdiagnosed, we can help you understand if you have a claim for medical malpractice.

Identifying a Cancer Misdiagnosis
There are a number of different methods for identifying the medical mistakes that are responsible for the misdiagnosis of cancer. In some cases, a physician’s mistakes will be obvious. In others, it takes a critical assessment of the patient’s medical records and an investigation into his or her medical history to determine whether cancer should have been identified sooner. No matter what is required, when you hire our legal team, we will thoroughly assess your case in order to determine what happened; and, if you are entitled to compensation, we will fight tirelessly to win the compensation you deserve.
