Why Didn’t Your Doctor Catch This Sooner?

Many people who are diagnosed with cancer wonder why their doctor didn’t spot the disease earlier to halt its progress. Sometimes the signs simply were not there. Even more unfortunately, sometimes the signs were there, but the doctor simply failed to look for them.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious harm, including a catastrophic injury, due to a doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer at an early stage in its progression, you have the right to take action. At the law firm of McKeen & Associates, we will stand up to negligent doctors and their insurance companies. We will strive to see that they are held responsible and that you get fair compensation for what you have been through.

  • At a screening mammogram, test results demonstrate changes that a doctor fails to take note of, changes that indicate breast cancer.
  • A doctor recognizes an anomaly that could be skin cancer and initiates the necessary testing, but fails to send the sample to the pathologist and the cancer is not diagnosed when it could have been.
