Helping Columbus Residents Recover For A Doctor’s Failure To Diagnose Breast Cancer
Breast cancer awareness has increased greatly over the years. However, there are still far too many incidents where doctors either misdiagnose or fail to diagnose breast cancer. Each and every patient is unique, and physicians must take into account a number of different factors when attempting to make a diagnosis.
When a medical professional fails to follow the standard of care when making a diagnosis, the results can be catastrophic and, in some cases, fatal.

At Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty, LLC, our Columbus attorneys have been providing representation to injured people and their family members throughout Ohio for 50 years.
We understand how to tackle complicated medical malpractice claims to help you recover the compensation you are entitled.
Investigating Your Case
We are dedicated to holding medical providers accountable when they fail to follow the accepted standard of care. We will take a thorough look at your case in order to determine:
- Whether family history indicated a more rigorous breast cancer screening
- Whether the provider ignored patient symptoms
- Whether all necessary tests were carried out
- Whether the test results were properly reviewed
- Whether the patient should have been referred to a specialist
- Whether the patient was fully informed of available treatment options
Any or all of the above can point to signs of negligence in a failure to diagnose claim. When it comes to treating breast cancer patients, time is of the essence. Any delays in treatment arising from a missed or failed diagnosis can result in a patient’s condition worsening.
While our lawyers may not be able to repair the harm that was done, we can help send a message that negligent actions by medical providers will not be tolerated.
