Rhode Island Failure to Diagnose Skin Cancer Lawyer

About DeLuca & Weizenbaum, LTD. – Providence RI Lawyers

http://www.delucaandweizenbaum.com/ 401-354-7233 At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, LTD. in Providence, RI we have over 30 years of experience handling personal injury cases. We focus our practice mainly on medical malpractice matters, call today.

Seeking Compensation for Delayed Diagnosis

Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer. Although most skin cancers can be treated effectively, some types, when left untreated due to delays in diagnosis, can metastasize, spreading to other parts of the body with potentially fatal consequences.

At the Providence law firm of DeLuca & Weizenbaum, our experienced attorneys help patients and families throughout Rhode Island pursue medical malpractice claims for doctors' failure to diagnose skin cancer. To schedule a free consultation, contact us today.

Holding Doctors Accountable for Failure to Identify Melanoma

Dermatologists and other doctors are responsible for carefully looking at any skin conditions that are brought to their attention and asking their patients the right questions in order to determine whether they may have skin cancer. Common signs of skin cancer include:

  • Scabs that don't heal
  • Moles that change shape
  • Growths that change color
  • Irregular spots on the skin

When one of these conditions is present anywhere on the body — including frequently overlooked areas such as the feet — there is reason to suspect that it may be a sign of skin cancer, and the doctor treating the patient should order a biopsy to test that diagnosis.

While some types of skin cancer rarely spread, other types — particularly malignant melanomas — are much more likely to metastasize. A doctor who does not correctly identify the type of skin cancer affecting a patient could be putting him or her at risk.

Prepared to Take Your Case to Trial if Necessary

The dedicated trial lawyers and nurses at our firm are experienced at helping clients pursue medical malpractice claims for cancers that go untreated due to misdiagnosis and delays in diagnosis. We use cutting-edge technology and credible experts to support our clients' claims.

If your condition has gotten worse or you have lost a loved one due to a doctor's failure to diagnose skin cancer, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your potential malpractice claim. We will not charge you any fees unless we help you recover compensation.
