Medical errors and misdiagnoses can cause a devastating and traumatic experience. Patients who are misdiagnosed are often subject to unnecessary and painful treatments. When it comes to a serious misdiagnosis such as cancer, it is important to confirm the misdiagnosis by seeking out second opinions and consulting specialists.

If you believe you are the victim of a medical error or misdiagnosis, you need an attorney immediately.

Proving misdiagnosis as a form of medical malpractice requires attorneys who pay attention to detail. Patients must prove that a doctor did not consider the proper diagnosis as a possibility during the evaluation. Additionally, patients can also help prove that they were not properly evaluated based on the symptoms they reported to their doctor. 

Proving negligence requires hard-working attorneys. Our attorneys at Latona Law will work tirelessly to find out who was at fault for your misdiagnosis. Our consultation is free and we’re always in your corner.

If you feel a doctor has misdiagnosed or mistreated cancer in you or your loved one, we will gather evidence after we meet and determine whether you have a case. If we find that your doctor truly failed in his or her duties in treating or diagnosing a form of cancer, we will initiate a cancer misdiagnosed lawsuit on your behalf. The team at Latona Law understands that a successful misdiagnosed cancer lawsuit would provide financial restitution for the use of long-term medical and disability care, medical bills, and loss of wages.
