Failure to Diagnose Cancer

Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Portland, Oregon

Failure to diagnose is a common medical malpractice claim. When conditions are not diagnosed, or diagnosed properly, they cannot be treated properly. The longer a patient goes without treatment, the worse their condition will become. This is particularly true with cancer.
