Skin Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawsuits in New Jersey

Melanoma and other forms of skin cancer cause thousands of deaths each year. Many of these fatalities are not caused by cancer alone. Instead, they are caused partially by a medical provider’s negligence in not catching the signs of melanoma early enough to provide the patient with effective treatment options.

If you or a loved one were not properly diagnosed with melanoma by a doctor in New Jersey, then Simonson Goodman Platzer PC wants to hear from you. Our melanoma misdiagnosis lawyers can evaluate your situation, determine if a doctor’s failure to diagnose you contributed to the worsening of the condition, and see what steps should be taken next. With our help, you might be able to secure compensation to pay for medical costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, the loss of a loved one, and more.

Let’s begin today. Please call (800) 817-5029 or contact us online.

Different Skin Cancers

Skin cancer can be caused by a number of different sources. For example, some types of skin cancer are caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, whereas other types are caused by exposure to unsafe chemical substances. The type of exposure that caused your skin cancer can change the methods of your diagnosis, which, in turn, can change our approach to your melanoma misdiagnosis case.

Let us know if you have one of these skin cancers and were misdiagnosed:

  • Melanoma
  • Basal cell carcinoma
  • Squamous cell carcinoma
  • And others

Melanoma Misdiagnosis & Malpractice

Skin cancers usually manifest signs at the surface of the skin or just under the top layer. You might notice lesions, new moles or freckles, or reddened skin. In severe cases, a lesion can appear that is itchy, bleeding, or burning. If you see a change to your skin that seems unusual or worrisome, then you should see a medical provider as soon as possible.

With melanoma manifesting symptoms that can be detected without surgery or other intense medical methods, it is even more frustrating when it is misdiagnosed. Reasonably, a medical provider who knows what medical tests to order and how to assess their results should be able to catch skin cancer or melanoma as it is forming. For this reason, many melanoma misdiagnosis instances are caused by medical negligence and nothing else.

Different forms of medical negligence that can cause a melanoma misdiagnosis include:

  • Not ordering the right diagnostic tests
  • Misinterpreting lab results
  • Mixing patient records
  • Ignoring patient complaints of skin-related issues
