The answer to both questions is, yes. Unfortunately, your child may have cancer even if your child’s doctor diagnoses her with another, more common, illness or injury. Cancer is relatively rare, yet very serious, in children. A child’s best chances of surviving cancer are with early diagnosis and treatment. Thus, if you believe that your child has symptoms of cancer and you question a doctor’s diagnosis, then it is important to be persistent and to get a second opinion as soon as possible.

Likewise, it is important to contact a Georgia failure to diagnose attorney. If a doctor was negligent in his or her diagnosis of your child and your child suffered physical harm as a result of that negligence, then your child may have legal rights. Your child’s recovery may include compensation for past and future medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses incurred by your family, loss of future income, and past and future pain and suffering.

Your child deserves the best care and the best chance at developing into a healthy adult. Our Georgia failure to diagnose lawyers will fight hard to see that your child gets a fair financial and legal recovery as you fight hard for your child’s physical recovery.
