Every year, millions of Americans are diagnosed with cancer. Too often, however, this diagnosis comes too late to have a good chance of recovery. Other times, cancer treatments are done improperly, dooming the patient.
Few people realize that they may have a legal remedy for a missed opportunity to provide a cure. Even when a doctor treats your cancer to the best of their ability; if they had a chance to make an earlier diagnosis but did not through sheer negligence, they can be responsible for damages.
In a free initial consultation, the Arnette Law Firm can discuss with you the current law and how it may apply to your experience with a cancer misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis of cancer, or failure to treat cancer properly.

Cancer misdiagnosis cases can take many forms, and a lawyer must be ready to handle a wide range of medical issues. In one case we handled, a patient came to an obstetrician/gynecologist with complaints that pointed to ovarian cancer. The OB/GYN failed to test for cancer, however, necessitating later surgery that was much more extensive than it would have been had a timely diagnosis been made. In that case, we successfully settled for our client. See our verdicts and settlements page for more on this and other past cases.
