Failure To Diagnose Breast Cancer

New Jersey Attorneys: Failure To Diagnose Breast Cancer

In the United States, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer approximately every three seconds.* Early detection of breast cancer is one of the keys to successful treatment and recovery. Breslin & Breslin provides legal counsel and representation to women who were denied early detection and treatment because a health care provider made a critical error and missed clear signs of cancer.

Fighting breast cancer is hard enough. You should not have to fight the anger that comes with knowledge that you could have started treatment earlier but for a mistake by your radiologist, gynecologist or other health care provider.

What we can do is give you an honest evaluation of your legal options based on independent review of your medical history. If you choose to pursue legal action, we will act on your behalf with compassion, determination and careful application of strategic skill to achieve some measure of justice.
