Holding Negligent Doctors Accountable for Cancer Misdiagnosis
Skin cancer and melanoma can often be easily treated if recognized and handled early. Often it requires little more than an outpatient procedure and aggressive medication treatments to stop cancer in its tracks. But if that cancer is ignored or missed by a doctor, then it can grow and spread leading to devastating consequences.
From our offices in New Castle, Hermitage, Butler and Erie, Pennsylvania, our attorneys at the law offices of Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., put a proven record of successful medical malpractice litigation behind you. We have seen first hand how the negligence of a doctor who fails to properly diagnose skin cancer or melanoma can devastate a family.
Misdiagnosis of Skin Cancer and Melanoma
If you have visited a doctor to have a mole or other skin blemish examined, that doctor should consider and evaluate the possibility of cancer. Failing to do so can leave a patient who would have undergone relatively minor treatment by catching the cancer at an early stage facing more aggressive treatments.
A cancer misdiagnosis can have a significant impact on individuals and families if it means a patient goes untreated allowing the cancer to grow, including:
- Painful treatments
- Lost time from work
- Expensive surgery
- Wrongful death
Our lawyers aggressively pursue compensation and justice for clients who have suffered unnecessarily due to the misdiagnosis of skin cancer. These kinds of cases require careful attention, thorough preparation and a clear understanding of how to demonstrate the damage caused by doctor negligence. For over 25 years our firm has been successful at taking on complex medical malpractice cases and getting results.
