Failure to Diagnose Cancer in New York
When it comes to treating cancer, time is of the essence. The later a cancer is diagnosed, the more difficult it is to treat. Unfortunately, the failure to diagnose cancer can be a result of medical negligence. A failure to diagnose cancer can have a range of outcomes, including progression of the cancer and death. In cases where the patient survives, the victim and their family may have to adapt to a new way of living and wages may be lost. A highly competent team of physicians, nurses, therapists and counselors may be needed to assist in the victim’s recovery. And while some individuals do return to their pre-cancer way of living, others struggle with permanent disability, chronic pain and suffering and shorter life spans. In cases where the victim dies, the family is left with the loss of a loved one as well as the loss of financial support, funeral and medical expenses, loss of inheritance, and if children are involved, the loss of nurture and guidance from their deceased parent.
