Breast Cancer: Delayed Diagnosis Or Misdiagnosis?
When caught early, breast cancer can be treated aggressively with remarkably high survival rates. When doctors and other medical professionals make a critical error in failing to diagnose the disease in a timely manner, however, patients face grave challenges in their fight against cancer.
When you or someone in your family is at a disadvantage because of a delayed breast cancer diagnosis, turn to the law firm of Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC. Based in North Haven, Connecticut, our attorneys aggressively pursue claims against negligent radiologists, gynecologists or other health care providers.
