In many cases cancer is a treatable disease. When discovered in its early stages, the prognosis is often positive. However, the longer cancers goes undetected or misdiagnosed, the higher the chances are that the patient will not recover.

Failure to diagnose cancer or a misdiagnosis of symptoms related to cancer is fairly common in the medical world. Even the most highly skilled doctors can make mistakes that lead to tragedy.

At the Savage Law Firm we recognize the devastation a delayed diagnosis of cancer can bring to a patient and his or her family. Symptoms can increase. Illness may be prolonged. Lives can be cut short. Although taking legal action cannot change the fact that a doctor made a critical error, it can allow cancer patients and their families to feel as though some justice has been served.
