Delayed Diagnosis of Cancer and Other Serious Medical Conditions

Attorneys Helping People in Cleveland Who Have Been Injured by a Delayed Diagnosis

When we turn to doctors to diagnose a problem, we trust that they are carefully attending to our needs. Sadly, this is not always the case. When a doctor fails to diagnose a condition, delays a cancer diagnosis or misdiagnoses a serious infection or illness, our Cleveland medical malpractice lawyers have seen that serious harm can result.

A delay in diagnosing cancer or another disease may cause your condition to worsen. In many cases, by the time a cancer or disease is properly diagnosed, less invasive treatments that could have been effective had the cancer been properly diagnosed are no longer viable options. This forces a patient to undergo more invasive, painful treatments in an attempt to cure the spreading disease. The failure to timely diagnose and treat cancer may result in reduced life expectancy or even death.

Experience Equals Winning Results for Victims of Medical Malpractice

Rubin Guttman & Associates, L.P.A., has represented a significant number of clients who have been harmed from misdiagnosis or who have lost a loved one from a preventable wrongful death.

I had occasion to use Rubin Guttman's services, in connection with obtaining coverage from a well-known life insurance company, that ended with a completely satisfactory outcome for me. I cannot rave enough about the professionalism and quality of the service which I received from Rubin. They were as good or better as any of the major law firms NITA whom I have had previous experience. Jerry Rothchild
