Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorneys in Kansas City

Consequences of Misdiagnosed Cancer

The negligent failure to diagnose cancer is a medical error that usually has grave consequences for the patient. Negligently misdiagnosing cancer as some other condition is equally dangerous because it also delays the treatment of the real disease.

At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our Kansas City medical malpractice lawyers have helped numerous people whose illness has been made worse by the misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer. With cancer treatment, time is of the essence. Negligent misdiagnosis or delays in treatment of cancer can turn treatable cancer into a death sentence.
