Diagnosis Of Cancer
Any delay in diagnosing cancer can have devastating, if not deadly, consequences. An illness that goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed causes you to lose valuable time. Life-saving treatment options and a chance for a cure become limited.
New York medical malpractice attorneys Josh Gillette and Janet Izzo serve as dedicated advocates at your side. They empower clients to become their own advocates by having them take an active role in their claims.
Protect Your Rights Following A Delayed Diagnosis Of Cancer
Instead of waiting for a doctor’s telephone call, educate yourself on both your medical and legal options. Protect your health. Protect your rights with a call to our Syracuse-based law firm. We have represented area residents dealing with serious health challenges due to misdiagnoses of the following types of cancer:
- Colon cancer — Colon cancer is curable thanks to medical advances and timely diagnosis from an oncologist. Failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing colon cancer can result in a range of medical issues from a colostomy bag to the disease advancing outside of the colon.
- Cervical cancer — Historically, women have relied on receiving test results from a pap smear. When a physician does not follow up with results, they presume a clean bill of health. Being your own advocate requires you to proactively seek test results to see if you have cervical cancer. From there, you need to take the legal steps necessary in filing a claim within the statute of limitations.
- Breast cancer — Sadly, breast health clinics and medical imaging groups are more famous for their false negatives and other errors. Unreliable mammogram testing (recommended for women every two years) within certain segments of the population can have devastating and life-changing consequences.
At Gillette & Izzo Law Office, you are an important part of our legal team. Educating yourself and documenting your test results can help you make informed decisions. Those facts can also strengthen a cancer misdiagnosis claim should you be diagnosed with cancer in the future.
