Negligence arises due to failure to exercise reasonable care resulting in harm
Here, delayed disclosure of results would trigger a claim
needless to say, timely report can lead to immediate treatment
in this field especially, the earlier the disclosure the better the results of treatment and the more options are available
A claim would be viable
and best pursued using a plaintiff lawyer on commission
who may reach out to negotiate initially and sue secondly
records should be obtained to help narrate the case and assist with the above.
A good resource for that is martindale.com and findlaw.com
The claim should be pursued without delay
