We generally expect doctors to properly evaluate and diagnose our symptoms and to figure out what ailment we are suffering from and help treat the illness. However, all too often, doctors fail to properly diagnose patients. When you have cancer, each day without treatment could lead to your disease progressing. Untreated cancer could easily turn from manageable to terminal. If your doctor failed to properly diagnose your cancer, or misdiagnosed your cancer, you may have legal options. A Gloucester County cancer misdiagnosis lawyer could help you hold the negligent doctor accountable for his or her failure.
A persistent medical malpractice attorney could evaluate the factors that may have contributed to your case and work to establish the negligence of the physician. Before attempting to file such a claim alone, a person may strongly benefit from meeting with an attorney who is familiar with the potential legal issues surrounding cancer misdiagnosis cases.
Advances in medical technology frequently allow more health care professionals to recommend advanced diagnostic screening for cancer. Numerous tests may now be available to screen for different types of cancers. Examples of pre-cancer screening tests commonly include:
It is generally important that your doctor performs these tests regularly for them to be effective. It may also be important that your doctor recommends cancer screening tests if you have a family history of particular cancers or specific risk factors, such as tobacco use.
If your doctor fails to have you routinely screened for cancer, his or her actions may constitute negligence, resulting in a claim for medical malpractice. If you have cancer that may have been detected earlier through screening and your doctor failed to order the proper tests, a Gloucester County cancer misdiagnosis lawyer could discuss your potential options for recourse.
Imagine that you have been told you have cancer and undergo excruciatingly painful treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation. You may worry every day about whether you could beat this disease and what may happen to your family if you do not. The physical and emotional toll is often exhausting.
If you later find out that you never had cancer and may have undergone unnecessary surgery, such as a mastectomy, for no reason from a disease that never existed, you could be eligible for financial compensation from a negligent physician. Such a mistake should not be taken lightly, as it could cause a person to suffer from significant health complications, severe depression, and anxiety.
Often a doctor may misinterpret lab or test results which could subsequently lead to a misdiagnosis. Unnecessary treatment may negatively impact your health and emotional well-being. Furthermore, unnecessary treatment could create a financial hardship which could be devastating for families, particularly when treatment was not needed. However, you could hold your doctors accountable for misdiagnosing your disease and file for compensation to address your financial losses. Schedule an appointment with a Gloucester County cancer misdiagnosis lawyer to begin discussing viable legal strategies for your case.
While we may expect doctors to have all the answers, they frequently make mistakes that could have extensive negative impacts on a person’s quality of life. If a doctor failed to properly diagnose your cancer or has misdiagnosed your disease, we could help you pursue justice. Cancer misdiagnosis could lead to a shortened lifespan or immense physical suffering. Although a lawsuit may not be able to completely erase your pain and suffering, it could be beneficial to hold a negligent physician accountable for their actions through financial compensation. A Gloucester County cancer misdiagnosis lawyer could help advocate on your behalf. Call to arrange a consultation to evaluate your case and discuss applicable legal solutions.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10

In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life.

If you ever need assistance I highly recommend this practice!!! Beyond professional, helpful, precise, caring, knowledgeable & humble!!!

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
