What Should I Do If I Believe I Am a Victim of Cancer Misdiagnosis?
Your health is paramount, so if you suspect you did not receive an accurate diagnosis, you should immediately discuss your concerns with your doctor. Reiterate your symptoms, explain that the current treatment plan is not working, and ask for all pertinent tests to be run. If your doctor is not cooperative, consider getting a second opinion as soon as possible.
If any medical professional diagnoses you with cancer, you may have a medical malpractice case if you suffered harm as a result of the initial misdiagnosis. Our Baltimore cancer misdiagnosis attorneys can review your circumstances and walk you through your legal options.
You will only have five years from the date of the initial misdiagnosis or three years from the date of the date you discovered the misdiagnosis to file a lawsuit. Should a cancer misdiagnosis result in the death of a loved one, you will have three years from the date of their passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit. You will most likely be unable to recover any damages if you miss the applicable deadline.
In a cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit, Miller Stern Lawyers will work to prove the following:
- You and the misdiagnosing doctor had a doctor-patient relationship

- This failure resulted in harm

- Medical expenses
