What You Need to Know about Cancer Malpractice Lawsuits
Madison Personal Injury Attorneys Come Through for Cancer Patients
For many of us, the three scariest words in the English language are “You’ve got cancer.” Sometimes it’s simply genetics, and sometimes it is the result of toxic exposure. To make matters worse, some cancer patients have to deal with botched cancer surgeries and treatments, and even misdiagnoses that gave their cancer a head start.
Fortunately, for those in the greater Madison area, there is one law firm willing to take on powerful corporations, hospitals, and insurance companies to seek restitution for cancer patients and their families: Warshafsky Law.
Common Cancer Malpractice Lawsuits
One of the most common types of medical malpractice is misdiagnosis and improper treatment of cancer. Our Wisconsin cancer lawyers handle cases of:
- Breast cancer malpractice
- Lung cancer malpractice
- Pancreatic cancer malpractice
- Prostate cancer malpractice
- Colon cancer malpractice
- Mesothelioma cancer malpractice
- Kidney cancer malpractice
- Bladder cancer malpractice
Three Types of Cancer Lawsuits Handled by Warshafsky Law
Personal Injury Suits over Work-Related Cancer Cases
Many companies routinely require employees to work with toxic chemicals and materials. When it can be shown that on-the-job exposure to these materials was a likely cause of your cancer, you have every right to file a toxic tort lawsuit to recover medical costs, lost income from work, and even for pain and suffering.
In many cases, people living near factories have developed cancer due to a company’s careless release of toxic materials into the environment. In such cases, we can build a strong argument for a huge payout. Some toxic tort clients are the families of victims who have passed away. In every case, those who passed on had the peace of knowing the money we secured for them would provide for their spouse and children.
Filing Suit over Cancer Surgeries and Treatments Gone Wrong
Cancer is an invasive disease and usually requires aggressive treatments and surgeries. Unfortunately, oncologists and surgical oncologists aren’t perfect. Surgeries are sometimes botched and treatments occasionally inadequate or too intense.
When things go wrong, our Madison personal injury attorneys do everything possible to make things right. As attorneys, we obviously cannot provide medical care, but we can make sure those who failed in your care make restitution.
Lawsuits over Misdiagnosed Cancer Cases
Misdiagnosis of cancer comes in two shades of awful:
- Cases where the patient’s cancer was missed, giving it time to metastasize
- Cases where the patient underwent surgery or treatment for a cancer he never even had
Probably the worse of these two scenarios is when you’re told everything is fine, only to be later told “Oops, looks like we missed it the first time.” Failure to make an accurate diagnosis allows the cancer to grow undetected. Obviously, this has a seriously detrimental impact on the patient’s chances for survival.
Warshafsky Law Secures Maximum Compensation in Cancer Malpractice Suits
Patients who trust us with their personal injury lawsuits are consistently awarded some of biggest judgments in state history—something the insurance companies we face in court are painfully aware of. Our long history of Society Changing Judgments speaks for itself.
Warshafsky Law is nothing like most personal injury law firms. Instead of being quick to settle with an insurance company for whatever they offer, we prepare every case as though it will go to trial. When a case is heard before a judge and jury, there is always potential for a staggeringly huge award.
INJURED? It IS About The Money.®
With our long record of winning big for our clients, most insurance companies know better than to insult us with lowball settlement offers. If a reasonable offer of settlement is made, we’ll let you know. If not, we will be fully prepared to litigate your case in court to ensure you get the maximum amount possible.
It is always difficult weighing the certainty of a settlement offer against the potential of an even larger judgment awarded in court. One thing is for certain, though: For the best possible outcome, you’ll need the best personal injury attorneys in Madison. You’ll find them at Warshafsky Law.
You Pay Nothing Until You Have Been Compensated
Warshafsky Law is prepared to take on your case with no payment from you whatsoever. Only when your case is resolved and you have received compensation do we ask for payment. If there is no financial award in your case, you don’t owe us a thing.
