You have recently been diagnosed with cancer and now you begin your cancer treatment.
It's too late for surgical options and now you must start radiation and/or chemotherapy. While you are sitting for hours getting your chemotherapy, you keep thinking back to the days, months and years leading up to the date that you were diagnosed with cancer.
There is something in the back of your mind that doesn't seem right. You have since learned that many of the symptoms you presented with were actually warning signs that should have been recognized and followed up. Unfortunately, those warning signs were never followed up with and never investigated.
You begin to wonder what would have occurred had the doctor recognized what those warning signs meant. You suspect that if the doctor had investigated at that early stage, that your treatment and your outcome would be different.
You're unsure what to do and whether you should even speak to an attorney.
You should know that you are not alone. This has happened to other people. I answer these types of questions every single day. People call me with questions about whether the medical treatment they received was appropriate, and if not what can they do about it.
As a practicing New York medical malpractice trial lawyer I get questions every day from people who want to know what to do in this exact scenario. The only way to know for sure is to pick up the phone and call. I welcome your call. You can reach me at 516-487-8207 or by e-mail: [email protected] My secretary Frances will be happy to schedule a phone consultation with you and we can chat briefly to find out whether this is the right type of case for me.
I look forward to talking with you.
