A New York City Cancer Medical Malpractice Attorney to Fight for Money Damages
Robert A. Miklos has dedicated his career to assisting people and families injured as a result of medical malpractice. A New York City cancer medical malpractice lawyer at our firm will aggressively pursue negligent doctors, medical staff, medical facilities, and hospitals to obtain the maximum compensation available under the law for you.
Anyone who has personally been impacted by cancer, whether through their own bouts with the disease or that of a friend or family member, understands just how much it can ravage a person and their loved ones.
The good news is that advances in medicine are increasingly making more forms of cancer treatable. The bad news is that some doctors still do not properly diagnose the disease as soon as possible or do not immediately prescribe the appropriate course of treatment. Those mistakes put people’s lives at risk.
Common Forms of Cancer in New York City Medical Malpractice Cases
Cancer comes in a number of different forms, impacting various parts of the body. What all types of cancer have in common is that they occur when certain cells grow and spread uncontrollably. We bring lawsuits on behalf of patients that have not had a timely diagnosis of their cancer, resulting in a loss of chance of survival and less invasive treatment options.
At Miklos Law, a New York City cancer medical malpractice attorney commonly sees cases involving the following types of cancer:
- Breast Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Cervical Cancer
- Colorectal Cancer
- Endometrial Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Skin Cancer
- Thyroid Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Liver and Intrahepatic Bile Duct Cancer
These and other forms of cancer can be caused by various factors. The key to giving patients the best chance at survival and minimally invasive medical treatment is diagnosing the disease early and beginning appropriate treatment as soon as possible. When doctors misdiagnose or mistreat the disease, it significantly increases the risk of death.
Proving Medical Malpractice in New York City
In medical malpractice cases related to cancer, we commonly find that there were signs and symptoms of cancer well in advance. We consult with leading experts in all different types of medical specialties to determine if the cancer can and should have been diagnosed at an earlier stage. As cancer grows, it can progress from an early stage cancer to an advanced stage cancer. Advanced stages of cancer have worse prognosis or chances of survival. We bring lawsuits for the loss of chance of survival when cancer progresses from an early stage to an advanced stage due to a failure to timely diagnose cancer. In such circumstances, doctors, medical facilities, and hospitals put people’s lives at risk, and they are often liable for medical malpractice.
