A significant number of misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose lawsuits result from a cancer misdiagnosis, or a misdiagnosed heart attack or stroke. While not all medical emergencies or serious conditions can be detected or avoided, there are certain circumstances where the failure to diagnose is inexcusable.

Our medical malpractice lawyer, Robert Cannan, has the experience and skill to evaluate your situation and determine if medical negligence occurred. He will hold negligent medical providers accountable for:

  • Failure to respond to patient complaints
  • Failure to perform adequate testing in relation to symptoms and family medical history
  • Failure to review test results
  • Failure to follow up on questionable test results
  • Failure to repeat testing when symptoms persist
  • Failure to refer patient to a specialist when necessary

Failure to diagnose - case example: Attorney Robert Cannan was involved in the successful resolution of a medical malpractice lawsuit where a medical provider's negligence resulted in the failure to detect a cancerous tumor in a patient's chest. Effective negotiation led to a settlement that promised $2.6 million to the victim and his family. When factoring the additional payments agreed to be made to the victim's wife over the course of her life, the financial recovery could reach as much as $3.3 million.
