Seeking Legal Assistance After a Cancer Misdiagnosis

Thousands of medical malpractice cases are pursued every year in Florida, with the legal action often related to the misdiagnosis of or the failure to diagnose cancer or some other serious disease. If you have suffered from such a diagnosis error, you can seek monetary damages from the responsible party, but you will need the services of a Miami medical malpractice attorney to ensure your fair treatment under the law. Such representation is available from the firm of Aronovitz Law

The Different Types of Medical Malpractice 
Although many cases of medical malpractice are related to mistakes in treatment, diagnosis errors can have equally serious consequences. In the case of cancer, such errors can lead to delays that can reduce the effectiveness and increase the cost of the subsequent treatment. Diagnosis errors can also increase the physical and emotional suffering of patients and their families. The failure to recognize a case of cancer can result from the following factors: 

•Ignoring the complaints of a patient 
•Failing to perform or to properly interpret diagnostic tests 
•Failing to refer a patient to a specialist 
•Misidentifying cancer as another disorder 

Taking Legal Action 
The laws in Florida make it difficult for the victims of medical malpractice to seek financial compensation. The statute of limitations for taking legal action is two years, which is only half the time available in other personal injury cases. Additionally, a successful case will require a careful review of the available facts and medical records by a qualified medical expert. A Miami malpractice attorney will thoroughly investigate the careless or incompetent actions of the medical facility and the personnel who failed to properly diagnose your disease. This is why you should consider turning to the services of a Miami malpractice attorney at Aronovitz Law.
