Failure To Detect Tumors

Portland Medical Malpractice Lawyer With More Than 35 Years Of Experience

Effective treatments to combat any illness commonly require early diagnosis. When a medical professional fails to administer the correct testing and assess all potential causes and symptoms, a delayed or misdiagnosis can result.

For cancer patients, these oversights can translate to the loss of ability to treat the disease, or a long overdue treatment that has tragic consequences.

I am medical malpractice attorney Robert Miller, founder of and trial attorney for the Law Office of Robert A. Miller in Eugene. I bring decades of experience and a reputation for results to the task of protecting your rights when a trusted physician has failed you.

For more than 35 years of successful practice in Eugene and Greater Portland, I have aggressively advocated for the rights of individuals and families whose lives have been altered by medical errors, doctor mistakes or hospital negligence.

In the course of my representation of malpractice clients, I have seen tumors as large as oranges overlooked by radiologists. The human eye and human brain continue to be essential components of any medical procedure, as fallible as they are. When human negligence results in misdiagnosis of your medical condition, you may be entitled to compensation to help you cover economic damages such as future medical expenses and lost wages, and noneconomic ones like pain and suffering.

When a serious injury occurs or illness worsens due to medical mistakes, I conduct an in-depth investigation into what happened, to determine if the standard of care was breached; utilize my extensive knowledge of anatomy, medical care and medical jargon; and determine whether that breach was the ultimate cause of your injury.

Attorney Robert Miller Protects What Matters Most - You

You should speak with my law office immediately if:

  • Your doctor did not take your complaint seriously enough to conduct a thorough, timely examination.
  • Your test, biopsy or X-ray was misinterpreted and the doctor did not re-examine them.
  • Your physician did not understand proper treatment for your type of cancer, failed to consult a specialist and did not provide the treatment you needed.

Patients with obvious cancer symptoms should be offered CT scans, MRIs, neurological examinations and other tests to determine if a tumor is present. When testing is ignored or a test's results are misinterpreted, causing a failure to diagnose, I can launch my own thorough investigation for experienced, client-committed legal representation.

My Law Office of Robert A. Miller has obtained six- and seven-figure settlements and verdicts on behalf of severely injured clients during our more than 35 years of service.
