Cancer Misdiagnosis Representation from Highly Respected Murfreesboro Attorneys
Helping patients who have experienced unsatisfactory cancer care
If you or a loved one have been ill, simply hearing the word cancer from your doctor can be a frightening experience. Fortunately, with early detection, proper diagnosis and quality treatment, cancer can be beaten. When a doctor fails to make the correct diagnosis, however, the odds of winning the battle can be tipped against you.
In many cases, cancer misdiagnosis cases result from the medical care providers failure to perform a differential diagnosis, which identifies potential conditions based on the patient’s symptoms, then eliminates each possibility one by one until a diagnosis is reached.
At Kidwell, South, Beasley & Haley, we represent clients who have fallen victim to improper cancer diagnoses. Our lawyers leverage more than 40 years of combined experience to assist you in the search for compensation for all losses resulting from a cancer misdiagnosis, including:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering

- Loss of quality of life
Experienced representation for victims of all types of cancer misdiagnosis
We represent Murfreesboro area individuals and families who have suffered financial, physical and emotional damage caused by various types of cancer misdiagnosis, including:
- Failure to diagnose: One of the most common types of cancer misdiagnosis is the failure to identify the cancer. In these cases, the medical provider may overlook key symptoms or dismiss symptoms as being unrelated to a condition. Failing to diagnose cancer dramatically impacts the patient’s survival rate and often leads to avoidable medical costs, unnecessary pain and the unfortunate loss of a life that could have been saved with an accurate and timely diagnosis.
- Incorrect diagnosis: Another type of cancer misdiagnosis involves the incorrect diagnosis of a condition other than cancer. For example, a medical provider may diagnose a patient with Multiple Sclerosis or another illness when the patient actually suffers from cancer. An incorrect diagnosis is dangerous for many reasons, most notably that the patient goes untreated for the cancer. Other dangers include unnecessary medical treatments that may impact the patient’s ability to battle the cancer. Patients who are incorrectly diagnosed often incur significant financial and physical losses.
- Wrongful diagnosis: One of the most emotionally charged types of cancer diagnosis, wrongful identification of cancer can wreak havoc on the patient’s life. Should a medical provider diagnose a patient with cancer when no cancer actually exists, the patient is likely to experience significant emotional turmoil, unnecessary painful treatment and avoidable medical costs. The patient is also likely to go untreated for the actual condition they suffer from.
