Medical malpractice lawyer Barry S. Kantrowitz aggressively advocates for victims of medical negligence throughout New York and New Jersey. Our full-service law firm represents cancer patients who have unnecessarily suffered due to a health care provider’s failure to diagnose cancer. Barry leads a team of attorneys that can help ensure you receive the support and access to treatment to which you are entitled.

You have the right to expect the highest standard of medical care from your licensed physician. When a doctor or health care professional fails to act in accordance with the standards set by the medical profession, your health and your life is at stake.

Early Detection of Cancer is Crucial

The first step for successful cancer treatment is early detection. When your diagnosis of cancer is delayed or overlooked, your chance of defeating the disease is reduced significantly. Treatment becomes more complicated. Suddenly, you face extreme bodily and mental challenges. In addition to the emotional turmoil, you may not be able to work or bring in the same level of income as before, and the medical bills may be overwhelming.

When Does Failure to Diagnose Cancer Constitute Medical Malpractice?

You should speak with our medical malpractice lawyer if you or a loved one has one of these cancers that was misdiagnosed, delayed in diagnosis or completely overlooked:

  • Lung cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Skin cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Bladder cancer

Your doctor may have misread or misinterpreted a PAP smear, MRI, CT scan, chest X-ray or mammogram. You may have had a specific complaint or concern over possible symptoms that were ignored by your healthcare provider. All the appropriate diagnostic testing measures may not have been pursued.

How Do I File Medical Malpractice Lawsuits?

At KGG, we have investigators who can uncover mistakes that were made in a doctor’s office, during a routine check-up or at lab testing facilities. Our medical malpractice attorneys get to the facts and use them to confront those whose negligence harmed you. Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer is one example of a medical malpractice case. Medical malpractice lawsuits are subject to a statute of limitations, so you should speak to a personal injury lawyer right away.
