When a patient exhibits symptoms of an underlying illness, such as cancer, it is the doctor’s responsibility to use his or her knowledge to correctly diagnose the illness. At times, the doctor may give a patient the wrong diagnosis because he or she neglects to administer the appropriate tests or misinterprets the test results.
At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., we understand the trauma of finding out you have cancer or another serious illness. We realize it is especially hard to find out after your illness was not detected at the first doctor’s visit. By the time you have realized the reason behind your affliction, your health may have severely worsened because your illness has gone untreated.
Our misdiagnosis attorneys have extensive experience helping clients throughout Missouri and Kansas with cases involving a misdiagnosis of cancer and other illnesses. Contact our law office today at 816-421-6868 for a free case evaluation.
Failure to Diagnose Cancer in Missouri
Failing to diagnose cancer or other serious illnesses can result in grave consequences. If detected early, cancer can be treated through chemotherapy, radiation or surgery. However, if the cancer is not treated in a timely manner, it may spread to the point where the patient’s body no longer responds to treatment and can even lead to death.

We work extensively with medical professionals to establish a winning medical malpractice claim. Our experts will assist us in proving liability, demonstrating damages and obtaining insurance coverage. We will provide vigorous representation to ensure full compensation for your suffering.
