How do I know if I had a misread pap smear?

Cervical cancer generally advances quite slowly and can typically be detected before it has spread. In fact, pap smears allow physicians to find and remove precancerous cells before cervical cancer has developed. If your first diagnosis was of an advanced stage of cervical cancer, it is likely there is a misread pap smear in your history. We can obtain your medical results for analysis to determine whether you may have a case. If there's any doubt in your mind as to whether your cervical cancer may have been misdiagnosed, contact our attorneys to discuss your legal options.

I'm worried cervical cancer lawsuits will be converted into a class action, where the plaintiff receives very little in compensation. Is that true?

No, cervical cancer lawsuits will not be a class action. In most cases of major medical harm cases such as this, actions from around the nation are consolidated as Multidistrict Litigation (MDL), which allows for greater efficiency in the courts while still awarding monetary compensation on the basis of each individual case.

I'm not the sort of person who sues. Is it really necessary to file a pap smear lawsuit?

Most American families would rather not get involved in a lawsuit, for a variety of reasons. But if you or a loved one has suffered as a result of a dangerous medical device or drug, you are bound to encounter significant medical fees. Between treatment, hospital stays, long term care, lost income, and other costs, the medical expenses can be enough to cripple a family financially. The cost of healthcare is constantly rising, making it impossible to predict how much you may ultimately require to cover medical costs. Furthermore, no amount of money can undo the wrong caused by the delayed diagnosis of cervical cancer. A pap smear lawsuit can recover financial security for your family and highlight a company's violation of consumer trust. Many corporations only improve their safety standards when the threat of major litigation forces their hand. In addition to helping your own family get the compensation that you deserve, your lawsuit may pressure a company to become a better corporate citizen and prevent other patients from suffering the same fate in the future.

What are the time limits for filing a pap smear lawsuit for cervical cancer misdiagnosis?

Many states do have times limits that apply to product liability cases such as misread pap smear cases. In most cases, a cervical cancer case will fall within the time limits if an attorney is contacted in the near future.
