Q: I Have a Rare Form of Cancer that My Doctor Failed to Diagnose. Is My Doctor off the Hook Because My Cancer is Rare, or Should I Contact an Atlanta Failure to Diagnose Lawyer?
Doctors are not automatically free from liability if they fail to diagnose a rare form of cancer. In a Georgia medical malpractice case, a judge and jury is going to consider whether the doctor exercised reasonable care in making your diagnosis. In other words, did the doctor exercise the same care that another reasonable doctor would have exercised when presented with the same symptoms?
If a doctor failed to exercise reasonable care and should have taken the steps necessary to properly diagnose your cancer, then it is important to contact experienced failure to diagnose attorneys to discuss whether you may have the right to recover for cancer malpractice.
Each potential medical malpractice case is highly dependent on its unique facts. The fact that your cancer is rare does not necessarily prevent you from obtaining a legal recovery.
