Do I Have a Case if My Doctor Failed to Detect Cancer?

If you have been recently diagnosed with cancer, and you believe that your doctor should have detected it sooner, you may be wondering if you have a medical malpractice case. In many instances, doctors do not detect cancer until it has already progressed to a later stage. This can often lead to worse outcomes for the patient.

If you feel like your doctor failed to meet the standard of care in diagnosing or treating your cancer, you may want to speak with a skilled medical malpractice attorney about filing a lawsuit.

You May Have a Medical Malpractice Case if Your Physician Fails to Detect Cancer

There are several factors that need to be considered in order to determine if you have a case:

  • First, it needs to be shown that your doctor owed you a duty of care. This means that they were responsible for providing you with an adequate level of care, based on their training and experience.
  • Second, it must be proven that your doctor breached this duty of care. This can be done by showing that they did not follow the proper procedures for diagnosing and treating cancer, or that they failed to order the necessary tests.
  • Third, it must be shown that this breach of duty resulted in you sustaining harm.
  • Finally, it must be proven that you have suffered damages as a result of this harm.
