If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cervical cancer with no prior history of an abnormal pap smear, you may be eligible to file a cervical cancer lawsuit. Filing a cervical cancer lawsuit enables women and families who have been harmed as a result of a misread pap smear to seek compensation for damages including medical bills, lost income, pain, suffering, and loss.
Our attorneys handling cervical cancer lawsuits believe women who have suffered as a result of a misread or misinterpreted pap smear may be eligible for significant compensation. Misdiagnosis of cervical cancer may not be the fault of an individual; instead, it may be linked to a systemic shortcoming in current pap smear analysis procedures. The U.S. Preventative Task Force asserts that the prevalence of physicians who rely on technicians to view the slides for them puts women at risk. Additionally, reliance on new technology which pre-selects slide samples automatically means that, in some cases, technicians are not viewing the essential areas of every slide. These factors contribute to cases of misdiagnosed cervical cancer.
Thanks to a capacity to detect precancerous cells before cervical cancer itself develops, pap smears are effective at saving women's lives. However, when early signs of cervical cancer are overlooked, pap smears are not effective. When a woman's first inkling of her disease is a full-fledge cancer diagnosis, an opportunity to treat early -- and possibly to save her life -- has been lost. Critics allege that millions of women have been exposed to an increased risk for cervical cancer and its attendant pain and suffering, at no fault of their own. Shortcuts created to increase efficiency and lower costs have resulted in a threat to women.
Filing a cervical cancer lawsuit related to a misread pap smear is the only way to secure compensation for medical bills, lost time at work, pain, suffering and loss that have resulted from the misdiagnosis of cervical cancer. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with active or advanced cervical cancer with no prior history of an irregular pap smear, you may qualify to file a cervical cancer lawsuit to recover compensation for damages you have suffered as a result of a misinterpreted pap test.

Many persons who have been diagnosed with cervical cancer after a misread pap smear wonder if filing a cervical cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit will result in meaningful compensation for their family. Filing a cervical cancer lawsuit is not the same as joining a class action lawsuit in which those who file a claim can expect only a small, symbolic settlement. On the contrary, lawyers handling cervical cancer lawsuit claims believe persons and family members of persons who have developed cervical cancer with no prior irregular pap smear results may be entitled to significant compensation. While each new cervical cancer lawsuit will be consolidated as part of the existing Multi-District Litigation (MDL), each claim will be handled on its own merit and compensation will be determined based on the degree of suffering of each plaintiff.
We will represent all persons involved in a cervical cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit on a contingency basis, meaning our lawyers never charge legal fees unless we win compensation in your case.
