What Expenses and Losses Can a Springfield Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney Recover?
A cancer misdiagnosis allows the disease to spread, which often leads to a worsening outcome, additional treatments, more side effects, and even death. In the best-case scenario, cancer is identified, diagnosed, and treated promptly. This gives the patient the best chance at a positive outcome.
When the correct diagnosis eventually comes, the patient must undergo additional medical treatment and care, time away from work, and possibly permanent injuries. The recoverable damages our attorneys often secure in these cases include:
- Additional required medical and long-term care costs
- Income losses
- Diminished earning capacity
- Related expenses with receipts
- Pain and suffering damages
Unfortunately, when a patient does not receive a correct diagnosis and prompt treatment, it often allows their cancer to advance. Some pass away from an otherwise treatable disease. If this happened to your loved one in Springfield, our wrongful death lawyer can help. We will assess your options with you and discuss your next steps. Contact us today to get started.

Our Springfield Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorneys Build Convincing Arguments for a Strong Payout
Depending on the type of cancer, the symptoms a patient experiences could be confused with several other conditions. However, doctors have a responsibility to follow specific procedures and processes to rule out serious conditions such as cancer while diagnosing the patient. This could include running certain lab tests, using medical imaging, and more.
When the doctor or healthcare facility fails to follow the typical process others with similar skill sets would, and this leads to a misdiagnosis, it is likely medical negligence. A medical malpractice case requires that we prove:
- A doctor-patient relationship existed.
- The doctor or hospital failed to provide a reasonable standard of care, in this case, failing to provide a prompt and accurate cancer diagnosis.
- The misdiagnosis caused harm, possibly allowing a relatively minor cancer to metastasize or for a fast-spreading cancer to grow extensively.
- The patient endured physical, emotional, and/or financial damages.
The standard of care often plays an essential role in these cases. We work with medical experts to establish the standard of care and determine if the potentially liable parties provided it. Under Ohio law, the standard of care is the care a reasonably careful doctor with the same training and experience as the doctor in question would provide under the same circumstances.
Ohio medical malpractice cases rely on experts to document these cases and build a strong argument for liability. A misdiagnosis could occur because:
- A doctor’s carelessness, failing to meet the standard of care
- Inadequate processes in place to protect patients
- Lack of training
In any of these cases, our attorneys can work with our network of medical expert witnesses to document what occurred and how the care our client received deviated from the standard of care. This allows us to seek fair and appropriate compensation for them.
