Harmed by Your Doctor's Failure to Diagnose Cancer? We Can Help.
Everyone makes mistakes. Unfortunately, the mistakes that doctors and hospitals make can permanently injure or even kill a person. Many times, these mistakes are entirely preventable — if only the doctor on duty had been on the ball.
The Constitution of Pennsylvania and the laws of our Commonwealth allow for persons injured or killed by medical mistakes to seek financial compensation for their losses. Medical professionals need to be held accountable to the full extent of the law for needless mistakes and tragedies that they cause. Further, those who have been harmed by doctors generally suffer permanently disabling injury; they need a way to pay for their medical expenses and the cost of adjusting to life after such an injury.
When You Cannot Stand Up Alone, We Stand Up for You.
At the law office of Ogg Murphy & Perkosky, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we have the experience, resources and the reputation to mount strong cases for medical malpractice on behalf of clients injured or those who have had loved ones who died as a result of a cancer misdiagnosis, a delayed cancer diagnosis or a failure to properly treat the cancer.
How could cancer be misdiagnosed, you might ask?
We have obtained significant awards and settlements for clients in situations like this one:
A man having a routine chest X-ray is discovered to have a small spot on his lung. Over a three-year period, the man has multiple CT scans of his lungs to evaluate the suspicious lung mass. Tragically, the CT scans were not personally read by his pulmonologists and his growing cancer went undiagnosed and untreated. Going from a treatable Stage 1, the cancer advanced to Stage 4 and took the man's life.
We have represented numerous clients where the physician failed to order a necessary test and even more inexcusable, where the physician failed to read the results of tests that they ordered.
We also represent clients injured through:
Failure to diagnose cancer
Failure to diagnose heart attacks
Failure to diagnose strokes
Birth injury and Cerebral Palsy
Emergency room errors
Should you retain our services, we will stand by your side fighting for you every step of the way through this difficult time.
