Legal Question

Asked on: 2/04/12, 7:08 pm

My mother started going to her doctor in June of 2011 for a lump that she found in her chest. Her doctor had prescribed her antibiotics because she was assuming my mom had some kind of chest infection, and did not schedule a biopsy till January of 2012. My mother started felling more sick throughout the months after going to her doctor, and went to the ER at saint Agnes hospital in December of 2011 because she could not stand the pain in her chest. While in the ER they were abel to detect that she has breast cancer. If it was not for the ER her cancer would have possibly gotten worse. At the moment my mother is going to chemotherapy, and I just want to find out if there are any legal actions that can be taken against the doctor my mother was going to for some kind of malpractice.
