Lung Cancer Lawyers

Anyone who has ever received lung cancer (or cancer of any type) or has a suspicion that they may be developing lung cancer knows how frightening it can be. Patients deserve to have the right diagnosis and treatment provided by doctors who are competent and care about the health and well-being of their patients.

When a patient who has developed lung cancer sustained serious harm due to a misdiagnosis, delayed lung cancer diagnosis, or improper treatment on the part of the physician, that patient deserves to fight for their rights and the compensation they deserve for the harm that was caused. A delay in diagnosis means a delay in treatment, and that can be the difference between life and death for lung cancer patients. No matter the reason you may have developed lung cancer (asbestos exposure, smoking, genetics, etc.), you deserve the right lung cancer diagnosis and treatment from the medical professional you have trusted with your care.

At Raizman Frischman & Rizza, P.C. in Pittsburgh, PA, we handle lung cancer cases and a wide variety of other medical malpractice claims. The lung cancer attorney who represents you from our firm will discuss the particulars of your case, identify how and when the physician committed medical malpractice, and demonstrate that when lung cancer occurs, patients deserve the right diagnosis and treatment which you did not receive.

Delayed Diagnosis of Lung Cancer in Pennsylvania

Although lung cancer is often fatal, if detected early, it can sometimes be treated successfully. Unfortunately, lung cancer often presents as some other illness or condition, delaying the diagnosis and treatment that could save the patient’s life. Moreover, there are no universally accepted diagnostic tests for identifying lung cancer. Despite this, it is possible to detect it at a treatable stage. Those diagnosed with lung cancer early enough may have a chance at a full life.

A lung cancer lawsuit may be filed against a physician if you were diagnosed with lung cancer far later than should have been expected. If your diagnosis was delayed or you were misdiagnosed, that can certainly be grounds for a lung cancer claim against your doctor. Lung cancer cases can be a challenge even for an experienced lung cancer lawyer, so be sure to contact our attorneys at Raizman Frischman & Rizza, P.C. for assistance and representation for your claim.

Medical Negligence in Lung Cancer Cases

Those who develop lung cancer have plenty of concerns and issues to deal with in relation to their health. Something lung cancer patients should not have to worry about is a medical malpractice claim. If you have sustained irreparable harm due to medical malpractice, you may be eligible to file a lung cancer lawsuit.

At Raizman Frischman & Rizza, P.C. in Pittsburgh, PA, our clients with lung cancer have experienced incidents of medical negligence, such as:

  • A doctor failing to identify patient at increased risk for lung cancer because of family or personal history
  • Physician failing to follow up on a patient report of symptoms consistent with contracting lung cancer
  • A doctor failing to interpret routine blood test results that suggested any of the various types of lung cancers or lung tumors
  • Physician failing to investigate a suspicious mass possibly containing cancer cells on a routine or pre-surgical chest X-ray in otherwise healthy lung tissue
  • Physician failing to refer patient with possible lung cancer symptoms to a specialist certified with the American Cancer Society

If you or a loved one has endured medical negligence and sustained serious harm as a direct result, you may have reason to file a lung cancer lawsuit.

Wrongful Death Claims and Lung Cancer

When a lung cancer diagnosis is delayed because of medical errors such as those listed above, the prognosis for the patient is not good. When families suffer the loss of a loved one because of misdiagnosed or delayed diagnosis of lung cancer, they may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Out lung cancer attorneys know that money will not entirely remove the pain of premature death due to undiagnosed lung cancer. However, it can relieve a family’s anxiety about the future and help them pick up the pieces of their lives. Paying for medical bills, funeral arrangements, and the regular costs of living can be anxiety when a family member dies unexpectedly. The compensation from a wrongful death lawsuit may be able to relieve some of that stress.
