Every year, cancer continues to claim more lives and cause a multitude of hardships for cancer patients. Families lose loved ones to cancer, while those who are diagnosed face financial hardships, significant stress and other problems. Tragically, many cases of cancer are diagnosed too late and at Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we fight for our clients who have suffered because of misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis in San Bernardino, and other cities in California.

When cancer is detected early, lives can be saved. Unfortunately, some medical professionals fail to diagnose cancer soon enough because they do not identify symptoms correctly, while others may misinterpret the results of a test or fail to perform a test that was required. When a doctor’s negligent behavior results in the loss of life or unnecessary suffering that a patient never should have endured, they shouldn’t be allowed to get away with their actions. Sometimes, victims and their families are able to gain access to benefits by taking legal action against negligent medical professionals, which can also prevent them from making similar mistakes in the future.

If you or a loved one were diagnosed with cancer that should have been detected sooner, you may be struggling with a myriad of challenges and be very upset. However, it is important to remain focused, consider all of your options and identify the smartest course of action. On our failure to diagnose page, you can review more information that may help those who are suffering because of a delayed cancer diagnosis.
