Cancer Misdiagnosis

Introducing Our Firm

In some ways, the diagnosis of a medical condition is an art as well as a science — an art that doctors spend years learning to perfect. Doctors have a wide variety of diagnostic tools at their disposal to make an accurate diagnosis. General practitioners also have access to medical experts they can consult and refer patients to for further testing.

There are instances when it can be legitimately difficult to diagnose cancer. There are other times when the evidence points to cancer, and a misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose the cancer is the result of negligence on the part of a medical professional who:

  • Failed to promptly order reasonable and necessary tests
  • Misread test results
  • Failed to refer a patient to an appropriate medical expert when needed

Get Answers If You Suspect Medical Malpractice

How do you know if your cancer misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose in a timely manner was actually the result of medical negligence?

Most people cannot determine this on their own. It requires the help of a medical expert who understands the standard of care that would be provided by most doctors in a similar situation. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you access medical experts so you can get the answers and compensation you need.

For more than 25 years, injury lawyer John "Jack" Hoyt has been helping people in northern New Jersey who have been hurt by cancer misdiagnosis and other types of medical malpractice. We represent patients with cancer as well as family members who have lost a loved one to cancer because a misdiagnosis delayed needed treatment for:

  • Breast cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Colon cancer

Our firm works with a panel of medical experts in different specialties to prepare our cases for negotiation with insurance companies or for success in court.
