Misdiagnosis of Cancer in Kansas City

Kansas City’s Leading Medical Malpractice Lawyers

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 Kansas City misdiagnosis attorneys have extensive experience helping clients throughout Missouri and Kansas with cases involving the misdiagnosis of cancer and other illnesses.

Put Dempsey & Kingsland on Your Side

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.

Our misdiagnosis attorneys are committed to holding health care professionals responsible for negligently overlooking early signs of cancer or other illnesses. We work extensively with medical professionals to establish a winning medical malpractice claim. Our experts assist us in proving liability, demonstrating damages, and obtaining insurance coverage. Dempsey & Kingsland provides vigorous representation to ensure full compensation for your suffering. We will not back down when insurers try to draw the line.

Looking Out for Your Best Interests

At Dempsey & Kingsland, we look out for your best interests. We bear the costs of experts and litigation when we take on a case and we do not recover our investment or take attorney fees unless we secure compensation.
