Pursuing Malpractice Claims for Delays in Treatment

Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related fatalities worldwide in both men and women. It is extremely important for lung cancer to be detected and treated as early as possible in order to give the patient the best possible chances of making a full recovery.

At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, our experienced Providence lung cancer misdiagnosis attorneys represent clients throughout Rhode Island whose cancer has gotten worse or who have lost loved ones due to malpractice. To schedule a free consultation, contact us today.

Should Your Doctor Have Ordered Tests for Lung Cancer?

Doctors should always be on the lookout for the signs and symptoms that patients may have lung cancer, especially when they are treated members of high-risk groups. The major risk factors for lung cancer include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Persistent coughing with no known cause
  • A history of smoking or secondhand smoke exposure
  • A history of exposure to asbestos and other chemical irritants

A responsible doctor will confirm or deny other potential diagnoses, such as bronchitis, and will order the necessary tests, such as chest x-rays and CT scans, at the appropriate times. A doctor who fails to follow professional standards can be held liable for medical malpractice.

Could the Cancer Have Been Cured With Earlier Detection?

A doctor's failure to diagnose lung cancer can cause the cancer to go untreated. It can then grow and metastasize, spreading to other organs. At this point, the cancer becomes much harder to treat, and the patient's chances of making a full recovery are significantly reduced.

If your cancer has gotten worse or you have lost a family member due to a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your options with a dedicated trial lawyer. You will not pay us any fees unless we help you obtain money damages.
