Baltimore Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers

When a doctor makes a mistake in diagnosing cancer, the patient pays the price. A delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer can lead to a delay in proper treatment or the wrong treatment being administered.

If you or a family member has suffered because cancer was misdiagnosed, you may be entitled to compensation. You should talk to a Baltimore cancer misdiagnosis attorney from the Law Offices of Sloane L. Fish, LLC. We offer a free consultation where we can discuss your injuries and devise a plan of legal action.

Understanding Cancer Misdiagnosis Cases

When diagnosed in a timely manner, many forms of cancer are highly treatable. However, when a diagnosis is delayed, the disease may progress to the point of being untreatable. There are many potential reasons why cancer may be misdiagnosed:

  • A doctor may fail to administer the right medical tests
  • An error may have been made during testing
  • An error may have been made when reading X-rays, MRI scans, or other tests
  • A testing machine may have been malfunctioning

Any error by a doctor, surgeon, pathologist, lab technician or other medical professional may lead to misdiagnosis of breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, skin cancer, prostate cancer or any other type of cancer. At the Law Offices of Sloane L. Fish, LLC, we will devote the time and resources necessary to prove that medical negligence occurred.

Once the cause is determined, we will help you seek compensation to cover a full range of expenses. If you lost a loved one because of a doctor's mistake, we can help you pursue a wrongful death claim.
