Cleveland Lung Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers

Did Your Doctor Fail to Diagnose Your Lung Cancer?

Among both men and women, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 210,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer each year, and of those, more than 160,000 die from it.

Smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke is the primary cause of lung cancer. However, lung cancer can also be caused by exposure to toxic chemicals, environmental pollutants, asbestos, ionizing radiation, radon gas, silica dust and other hazardous substances. No matter how you developed cancer, however, your physician has the responsibility to promptly and accurately diagnose it. Failure to do so can result in needless suffering and even wrongful death.

At Anderson Law Offices in Ohio, we maintain a respected reputation for our multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of individuals and families who have experienced significant losses due to a doctor's failure to diagnose cancer. Our Cleveland lung cancer misdiagnosis attorneys are here to counsel and represent you every step of the way and help you obtain maximum compensation for any negligence-related injuries.

Examples of Potential Medical Negligence

The early detection of lung cancer is vital in order to prevent it from spreading to the lymph nodes and to the rest of the body. Medical malpractice or negligence may be an issue if a doctor, radiologist or other medical professional:

  • Misreads X-rays, CT scans or other tests
  • Fails to order appropriate cancer tests
  • Misplaces or ignores the results of the tests
  • Delays or fails to recommend necessary treatment
  • Makes errors in surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy
