Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer cases are particularly difficult because of the nature of the progression of the disease and the different options available. We have built our reputation on integrity and honest hard work on behalf of our clients. Before accepting a medical malpractice case, we investigate to determine whether your circumstances merit legal action. We work with independent medical experts and oncologists to investigate diagnostic timelines, test procedures and treatment. If we do not feel confident you have a legitimate claim for recovering compensation, we will not lead you down a legal dead end.
