Pancreatic Cancer Misdiagnosis Claims

Pancreatic cancer is a life changing event for you and also for your loved ones.  It is common that symptoms do not show until the cancer is quite advanced. Symptoms of pancreatic cancer can mimic other conditions. If the cancer is not diagnosed at the earliest opportunity, the road to recovery may be longer and more difficult. In these cases, you may have a case for medical negligence.

Late Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

We can assist you with a cancer of the pancreas claim in situations where:

  • Your cancer of the pancreas was misdiagnosed
  • Early warning symptoms of your condition were missed
  • Scans  and results were misinterpreted
  • Incorrect treatment was given such an the wrong surgery

Early detection is the key to recovery with all cancers. This is even more true with pancreatic cancer. By the time symptoms start to show, there is often a tight time frame to receive life saving treatment. If there is a delay in diagnosis, treatment options can be limited and chances of success can start to drop.
