Cancer misdiagnosis lawyers help individuals regain the money they’ve spent to fight a costly and scary disease. They also assist when a misdiagnosis has postponed treatment resulting in a more serious prognosis.
Cancer is one of the leading killers in the United States. Fortunately, tremendous progress is being made in the fight against cancer, and with proper diagnosis and treatment, many cancer survivors lead full and active lives. However, when a physician fails to properly diagnose cancer in a timely manner, the patient’s options for treatment and prognosis may be altered dramatically.
Like all medical negligence cases, those involving the misdiagnosis, or delayed diagnosis, of cancer are generally complex in nature and replete with opportunities for negligent parties to avoid taking responsibility. The office of Davis Adams diligently discovers the important facts, retains world-class expert witnesses, and methodically prepares cancer misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis cases for trial in a way that maximizes the opportunity for a verdict that provides justice for our clients.
Unfortunately, you can’t litigate a cancer misdiagnosis indefinitely. The statute of limitations for a cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit in Georgia is just two years from the date of negligent care. However, certain conditions may expand this. For example, when the negligent care is only discovered at a later time, the statute of limitations begins at the time of discovery.
In other situations, this time period is shorter. For example, if a foreign object is left in a patient during surgery (a common form of surgery malpractice), that statute of limitations is one year from the date that the object is found.
Additionally, cancer misdiagnosis instances are subject to some statute of repose. This is meant to be a “final deadline,” beyond which a malpractice claim cannot be registered for any reason. The office of Davis Adams can help you in your legal endeavors.

“Our mother’s cancer was misdiagnosed at one of Atlanta’s most prestigious hospitals. That was bad enough, but when we began asking questions, the cover-up began. They tried to blame my mother for the mistake. But Chad and Jess figured it out. And they were relentless. The hospital finally admitted the whole thing and settled our case the day after it was filed.”
