PA Failure to Diagnose Chondrosarcoma and Osteosarcoma Lawyers
Bone cancer and sarcoma occur less frequently and can be more difficult to diagnose than some other cancers. However, they are also more serious, causing premature death more frequently than is the case with more common types of cancer. As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis and treatment is key to recovery. When medical intervention is delayed, the chance of a cure is greatly reduced.
At Raizman Frischman & Rizza, P.C., our Pennsylvania attorneys assist bone cancer patients and their families. We file medical malpractice and wrongful death claims for clients whose diagnosis or treatment was delayed or whose loved ones died as a result of delayed diagnosis and treatment. We develop a strong and compelling case to prove that negligence was the cause of a client’s serious medical condition.
Medical Malpractice in Bone Cancer Cases
We document medical errors, such as:
- Failure to perform a complete patient history that could identify a family tendency to this type of cancer
- Failure to order tests that could identify bone cancer in its early, treatable stages
- Failure to interpret tests and X-rays correctly
- Failure to identify signs and symptoms suggestive of bone cancer reported by patient
- Failure to prescribe correct treatment
Osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma are the primary types of bone cancer, with osteosarcoma being the most common. Like Ewing’s sarcoma, osteosarcoma occurs most often in children and teens. When either children or adults experience delayed treatment because of medical negligence, they suffer lengthy and painful radiology and chemotherapy treatments. They may be permanently unable to return to work or school. They are more likely to die prematurely. In short, the consequences can be life-altering.
Seeking Full Compensation for Clients With Bone Cancer
Our attorneys dig deep to identify medical negligence that resulted in a client’s delayed or incorrect treatment. We are proud to help people who are suffering because of medical malpractice and seek full compensation for their lost income, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other costs arising from the failure to diagnose bone cancer.
