3 Questions to Ask Yourself When Your Cancer Has Been Misdiagnosed
In order to determine if you have a potential misdiagnosis of cancer case, it is important to consider:
- Would your medical outcome have been different if the cancer had been properly diagnosed? If you required additional treatments or have a reduced life expectancy because of the cancer misdiagnosis, then you should contact an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney.
- If you had sought treatment from another doctor would your cancer have been properly diagnosed? If another reasonable doctor would’ve caught your disease earlier, then you should contact an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney.
- How much time elapsed between the cancer misdiagnosis and the proper diagnosis? If a significant amount of time elapsed that made your cancer harder to treat and your doctor should’ve been able to make a proper diagnosis earlier, then you should contact an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney.
