Our Marion, Ohio, Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers Build Compelling Cases for Compensation
Not all cancer misdiagnoses are medical malpractice. Sometimes, rare cancers or those that do not show typical symptoms might be missed by even the most careful doctors. The difference is the standard of care. Doctors must provide a reasonable standard of care, which is the care provided by another doctor who:
- Has the same training
- Has similar experience
- Works in the same geographical area
Doctors must follow certain procedures and processes to ensure they evaluate the patient properly and rule out serious conditions such as cancer while they are making their diagnosis. When they fail to do so, a misdiagnosis could occur. This is medical malpractice when:
- There is an established doctor-patient relationship
- The patient did not receive a reasonable standard of care
- The patient’s treatment caused harm, including preventing prompt treatment that allowed the disease to advance
- The patient has physical, emotional, and/or financial damages
Our Marion, Ohio, lawyers work closely with medical expert witnesses who help us document the standard of care that applies in these cases. We cannot pursue compensation and hold the liable parties accountable without their help. We have a network of experts we work with who can help.
We also know how to identify all the potentially liable parties in these cases. Most commonly, this is doctors, medical care facilities, and other care providers. In general, these parties may be liable because of the reasons the misdiagnosis occurred. Examples include:
- Negligence or general failure to meet the standard of care
- Understaffing or overcrowding
- Inadequate processes in place to protect patients
- Poor training

We believe you deserve justice if you suffered worsening health or lost a loved one because of cancer misdiagnosis or other medical malpractice.

You should continue your medical care while we navigate the medical malpractice claims process.
