Louisville Lawyers: Failure to Diagnose Cancer Claims

When cancer is diagnosed in a timely manner, the outlook can be quite optimistic. Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery can provide a cancer patient with hope for the future. When a doctor overlooks a cancer diagnosis or a patient is given a delayed diagnosis, the illness may be more difficult to treat. The likelihood of beating the cancer significantly decreases. The attorneys at Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC, understand the anger and confusion a person experiences during this time.

If you or someone you care about is in advanced stages of cancer because of an oncologist’s failure to diagnose cancer, contact our Louisville attorneys. We offer a free initial consultation and handle all cases on a contingent fee basis.
