Dermatologist Liability – Compensation for Your Medical Malpractice Claim
A claim for medical malpractice can be brought against your dermatologist for negligent treatment of skin or failure to diagnose or properly treat certain skin infections or conditions. Failure to properly diagnose or treat early signs of skin cancer can expose the treating physician to malpractice. Downtown L.A. Law has been advising those who have been improperly diagnosed or treated to seek legal advice with regards to their claim.
Often time’s dermatologist will fail to properly diagnose the skin condition as cancerous or will fail to perform any treatment in medically reasonable manner. Failure to timely diagnose, negligent diagnosis or mistreatment of a condition can have devastating consequences. This is particularly important when the condition can be treated if detected in a timely manner.
Certain cancerous skin conditions can be treated if detected in a timely manner. When your dermatologist fails with regards to their duties, it is often the patient who suffers the consequences. As a result there are increased medical cost, therapy cost and additional loss of services, which can be recovered.
While any amount of money is not sufficient restitution for your damages, or the harm suffered by a loved one, it is important to be compensated for your injuries.
Compensation for Failure to Detect Cancerous Skin Conditions
The most common form of malpractice amongst dermatologist is the failure to diagnose certain cancerous skin conditions. When your dermatologist fails to diagnose and treat certain forms of skin cancer, such as Basil Cell Carcinoma serious medical implications can result.
Patients are often times forced to deal with more evasive treatment and in other circumstances any chance of recovery is seriously diminished. Certain cancerous conditions require immediate treatment. When they are not properly treated they can become life threatening and often times are inoperable.
It is the duty of the dermatologist to make sure that all proper diagnosis are made and that you are given the proper treatment. If you have suffered injuries resulting from the malpractice of your dermatologist you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
