Have You Been Told By A Lawyer You Could Not Sue Your Doctor For Their Failure To Diagnose Cancer Because Too Much Time Had Passed?
A recent change in the law in New York now calculates and extends the time you have to sue your doctor for failing to diagnose your cancer. Now the time to sue is calculated from when you discover your cancer was misdiagnosed, not from the time when the misdiagnosis occurred. Now you can finally get the justice and compensation for the damages you have sustained.
Holds the Doctors Accountable. Join Our Fight for Justice
Early diagnosis is essential to catching and treating all different type of cancers. This is simply because the more time a patient has to fight, the better their odds are at beating cancer. Failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing any cancer is a deadly mistake.
Don’t Allow Doctors To Take Away Your Time
Most of our clients had not realized their advanced cancers could have been detected earlier had their doctors competently diagnosed their condition. Innocent people trusted their physicians to provide proper care and treatment….and some lost their lives as a result.
The Negligent Acts of Medical Malpractice
If a test was performed and misread to be normal, and if competently read would have yielded a diagnosis of stage one cancer, and the error was later discovered with the cancer now being at stage four, the victim will be entitled to compensation for this medical malpractice mistake. In the worst case scenario, if the patient ends up dying from the diagnosis, this can result in a wrongful death case.
What You Need to Know
Under the new change in the law, a cancer victim who was misdiagnosed has 2 1/2 years from the date of discovery of the misdiagnosis to bring a lawsuit. But if the negligence happened more than 7 years prior, the person would be barred from suing. The old law which is no longer in effect started calculating the statute of limitations time from when the misdiagnosis occurred, not when the patient learned of the misdiagnosis.
