Failure to Diagnose Cancer

Taking Action After A Failure To Diagnose Cancer

Finding out you or a loved one has cancer is a devastating reality, especially when the prognosis is terminal. Learning the outcome may have been better if the diagnosis had come sooner, however, is painful and traumatic. You expect your doctors to go to necessary lengths to properly and efficiently diagnose health problems, particularly one as life-changing as cancer. When they fail to, they cause further suffering, complications and expenses. Hobbie & DeCarlo, P.C., are there to support you when it feels like no one else is.

Understanding Different Forms Of Neglect

Medical malpractice takes many different shapes. Your doctor may neglect to identify cancer because he or she:

  • Did not perform reasonable or necessary medical tests
  • Did not meet the acceptable medical standard of care
  • Offered an incorrect diagnosis
  • Ignored your complaints
  • Misinterpreted lab results


Beyond coming to grips with the fact that you were mistreated by your medical provider in Monmouth County, New Jersey, you are also burdened with the task of taking on their callous insurers in court, who will do everything possible to deny liability.
