No one in the world is perfect, and that means everyone makes a mistake every now and again. This includes doctors and other medical professionals. Unfortunately, when a healthcare professional makes a serious medical error such as a bone cancer misdiagnosis or improper treatment of the condition, that mistake can be the difference between life and death for the patient. Those patients who have sustained serious injury or harm due to malpractice or medical negligence related to their cancer diagnosis or treatment may be eligible to file bone cancer cases.

At Raizman Frischman & Rizza, P.C., our medical malpractice attorneys have experience and skills when it comes to dealing with medical professionals who have made life-altering mistakes with bone cancer patients. We understand that a cancer diagnosis is devastating enough, but a delayed diagnosis, bone cancer misdiagnosis, or improper treatment options can be catastrophic for your health.

If you or a loved one has been misdiagnosed with bone cancers or had the wrong treatment performed, you may be eligible to file a personal injury/medical malpractice case. It is best to contact experienced medical malpractice lawyers to handle your personal injury claim and give you the best possible representation in your medical negligence lawsuit in Pittsburgh.

Types of Bone Cancer Cases

Bone cancer and sarcoma occur less frequently in the human body and can be more difficult to diagnose than some other cancers. However, they are also more serious, causing premature death more often 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.

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 (resulting in major lost wages) or school, and they are more likely to die prematurely. In short, the consequences can be life-altering.

Patients with cases of cancer misdiagnosis or delayed treatment resulting in serious repercussions to their health deserve to fight for their rights as medical negligence victims and to hold the doctors responsible for the harm they caused.
