Major advancements have improved treatment of various types of cancer and the lifespans of those diagnosed. Cancer was once considered a death sentence, but now there is hope in treating and recovering from the disease. Early detection, however, is vital. A misdiagnosis or even a briefly delayed diagnosis can make a treatable condition untreatable. If you or a loved one have been misdiagnosed or experienced a delayed diagnosis, the cancer lawyers at the Manchin Injury Law Group in West Virginia can help.
Since 1983, the attorneys at the Manchin Injury Law Group have provided compassionate representation to individuals and families dealing with the tragic aftereffects of a delayed colon cancer diagnosis, for example. We combine experience, legal knowledge and resources to pursue a successful outcome.
While you focus on health matters, we build a fact-based medical malpractice claim to hold the negligent physician accountable. For a free consultation, call us at (304) 367-1862 or contact us online.
Legislation has placed obstacles in the way of attorneys and malpractice victims. The focus of our attorneys is to get to the facts and overcome those challenges. Our firm enjoys a network of medical experts who render opinions related to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. They provide insight into deviations in the standard of care, which is required by the state of West Virginia in filing a medical malpractice claim.
In addition, state-mandated caps exist for out-of-pocket and economic damages in a medical malpractice claim. For example, in cases involving delayed prostate cancer diagnosis, pain and suffering and other noncapped, noneconomic damages play a significant role. Trust placed in an oncologist was broken when a diagnosis came late. The physician you thought you could trust must be held accountable.
The Manchin Injury Law Group can represent you, seeking answers and the compensation you deserve.
