Chicago Failure to Diagnose Cancer Attorneys

Diagnosis of medical conditions is a science as well as an art. It's an art that doctors train for throughout their lengthy education and their years of practice. It's a science that is developed and shared through medical journals and standards of practice. The Chicago medical community itself develops these standards of care — what tests should be done, when experts should be seen, what treatments to prescribe — based upon effectiveness.

Getting Compensation for Victims of Medical Malpractice in Chicago

Doctors can't be held accountable for every bad outcome, but they can be held accountable for failing to live up to the commonly accepted standards of practice of the medical community. They can be held accountable for negligence, such as:

  • Failing to order necessary and standard tests to achieve an accurate diagnosis
  • Failing to review test results and communicate them to the patient
  • Failing to send a patient to a specialist when the evidence warrants it
  • Failing to follow-up with a patient to see when treatment is not effective — when, perhaps, a patient has been misdiagnosed and requires different treatment

At the law office of Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, our Chicago medical malpractice attorneys bring medical error lawsuits involving failure to diagnose cancer and other misdiagnoses. For more than 40 years, we've been fighting to get results for the victims of doctor's negligence. We understand that getting maximum compensation for medical malpractice is a tough case to fight, but we know how to do it. We regularly work with medical experts from around the U.S. to prove that a doctor failed to meet commonly accepted standards of care.

Cancer Misdiagnosis Claims

A cancer misdiagnosis claim is no different than any other example of misdiagnosis malpractice with the exception that a delay in treatment can be fatal. In Chicago, family members may be the party to bring a claim for financial recovery after a misdiagnosis of:

  • Breast cancer misdiagnosis
  • Ovarian cancer misdiagnosis
  • Colon cancer misdiagnosis
  • Lung cancer misdiagnosis

Other Misdiagnoses of Medical Conditions

Apart from cancer misdiagnosis, the two most commonly misdiagnosed medical conditions are heart attack/stroke and appendicitis. These misdiagnosis most often occur in the emergency room.
