Early Detection of Breast Cancer is Crucial
Early detection of breast cancer is crucial — it can mean the difference between life and death. Sadly, at Nagel Rice, we have had to confront the unfortunate fact that many women end up suffering and even losing their lives due to breast cancer misdiagnosis. These people are victims because a test was not done or a doctor or other medical professional misread the test results or missed the signs that should have lead to an accurate diagnosis.
Our firm has recovered millions of dollars for women and families who have suffered and/or died as a result of a misdiagnosis, or delay in diagnosis, of cancer. Two such cases involving misdiagnosis of breast cancer resulted in settlement amounts of $700,000 and $400,000. Click here to review more medical malpractice verdicts and settlements.
At Nagel Rice, LLP, we believe that negligent parties should be held responsible when someone suffers and/or loses a life. Contact Nagel Rice at 973-618-0400 to arrange a consultation with a knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer. We try cases, and we produce results.
