When a person suffers continuing health problems, including pain in a particular part of their body, they may seek assistance at a hospital or doctor's office. The doctor or nurse responsible for your care is supposed to perform certain tests to determine whether you have cancer. If the physician failed to do the test that would have found something like cancer - and your cancer was not diagnosed as a result of this failure - you may have suffered irreparable harm. Depending on when your cancer was actually diagnosed, your treatment options might be limited due to the negligence of the doctor who treated you. The experienced Pittsburgh medical malpractice & cancer misdiagnosis attorneys at Berger & Lagnese can help you get compensated and hold the negligent medical professionals accountable for their failure.

If your loved one did not get the kind of care they needed from their doctor, physician, nurse, or other hospital staff member, you need to speak with a qualified medical malpractice attorney and determine the next step. The experienced Pittsburgh cancer misdiagnosis lawyers at Berger & Lagnese are prepared to assist you during this difficult time and help you get justice.

Sometimes, people go to a hospital with chest pain or pain radiating down their arms. These can be clear symptoms of a potential heart attack and indicate that the patient needs to be treated immediately. Unfortunately, doctors, nurses, and other emergency room personnel might not notice these signs and symptoms of a heart attack - so they will send the patient home without properly diagnosing and treating their medical condition. In the worst instances, this kind of medical negligence can lead to permanent disability or wrongful death. If you or someone in your family suffered a heart attack, or the heart attack symptoms were made worse, due to an early emergency room dismissal in Pittsburgh, you need to speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney at Berger & Lagnese immediately.
