Who can make a cervical cancer misdiagnosis claim or file a pap smear mistake lawsuit?
Individuals who were diagnosed with active or advanced stages of cervical cancer with no prior history of an abnormal pap smear may be eligible to make a claim by filing a pap smear lawsuit. If a family member of yours fits this description, you also may be eligible to file a claim on their behalf.
Who is most at risk for developing cervical cancer after a misread pap smear?
Any woman can develop cervical cancer. When a pap smear is misread or misinterpreted, abnormal or irregular cervical cells have a window of time to grow and develop without the physician’s knowledge. A misread pap smear can happen to anyone. A sign that a woman may have a misread pap smear in her medical history is a diagnosis of active or advanced cervical cancer with no prior indication of abnormal cervical cells.

We’re not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug or medical practice, long-term, or even lifelong, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
Aren’t most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
National pap smear lawsuit claims will not be class action lawsuits, but may potentially be consolidated as MDL, or Multi-District Litigation. This is a type of litigation in which each plaintiff can expect to receive a settlement based upon their individual circumstance and degree of suffering. MDL allows for the efficient processing of hundreds or thousands of claims against a company, all related to similar claims regarding a single dangerous drug or medical practice.
How much time do I have to file a pap smear lawsuit related to cervical cancer misdiagnosis?
Most states have pap smear lawsuit time limits; however, the majority of all persons having been diagnosed with cervical cancer will fall within those time limits if they contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.
