In today's world of modern medicine and advanced screening techniques, failure to diagnose certain types of cancer, illnesses or other health conditions in a timely fashion may be medical malpractice. Some diseases, when caught early, are completely curable. However, if those same illnesses progress, they can be fatal. The earlier the diagnosis, the better the chances for survival.
If you or a loved one was diagnosed with an advanced stage of cancer, or if a health care provider in an emergency room failed to provide immediate attention for symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, you or your loved one may be the victim of medical malpractice.
