New Mexico Leukemia Misdiagnosis Lawyers

There are numerous types of leukemia and successfully combating this form of cancer depends heavily on treatment protocols. As such, when a practitioner renders a leukemia misdiagnosis, the results can be devastating. Depending on the extent of this medical error, the result can be delayed treatment or an incorrect approach entirely. Dominguez Law works with those victimized by negligent medical providers who have set you on a path that compromises your health and mitigates the chances of overcoming your medical challenges. 

We have a proven track record in this area of medical malpractice and may be able to help you get justice in your case as well. As a top New Mexico leukemia misdiagnosis attorney we are compassionate in our work with you and relentless in our pursuit of compensation on your behalf. 

How a Leukemia Misdiagnosis Can Occur

Diagnosing leukemia requires a physical exam, blood test and bone marrow test. Given the extent of the diagnosis process, a misdiagnosis certainly raises questions about the competence of the medical practitioner in this situation. There are several reasons why misdiagnosis of this magnitude can occur, including: 

  • Failure to take specific symptoms seriously or pursue answers regarding their occurrence
  • Failure to properly interpret the results of a diagnostic examination
  • Failure to listen to what the patient is saying about their physical health
  • Failure to order the appropriate diagnostic tests
  • Failure to properly update the patient’s file or updating the wrong patient’s information

A leukemia misdiagnosis can result in delayed or erroneous treatment – or even none at all. When you rely on a correct diagnosis to successfully combat this form of cancer, your chances can be adversely impacted, sometimes even permanently. 

Filing a New Mexico Leukemia Misdiagnosis Claim

As dedicated New Mexico leukemia misdiagnosis lawyers, Dominguez Law believes that those who operate with such gross negligence should be accountable for their actions. We work to establish that your practitioner had a duty of care that they neglected to uphold. Our background in this practice area has allowed us to cultivate a team of experts with medical knowledge on misdiagnoses and the toll these errors can take on your health. 

As we are pursuing a medical malpractice claim on your behalf, we will also show evidence that the result of the leukemia misdiagnosis rendered to you resulted in harm. This can be shown through cancer that has since advanced because of lack of proper treatment or even treatment rendered for cancer you may not even have. We will also demonstrate the impact of a leukemia misdiagnosis on your finances, emotional well-being, and other areas of your life. 

As the victim of medical malpractice, you should never be forced to live with the long-term ramifications of a mistake that is this serious. We will fight on your behalf to get justice for a devastating diagnosis handled with such carelessness. 

How Can Compensation Help with a Leukemia Misdiagnosis?

When pursuing compensation for a leukemia misdiagnosis, there are several considerations we will put forth. They include compensation for: 

  • Your pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional distress
  • Unnecessary medical expenses garnered because of the misdiagnosis
  • Lost wages due to unnecessary/incorrect testing
  • Future lost income due to the need for new avenues of treatment/diagnostics
  • Changes in lifestyle resulting from any permanent injury caused by erroneous treatment protocols or delayed diagnosis

A leukemia misdiagnosis can be profoundly impactful no matter how the error manifests. For example, if you are the victim of a delayed diagnosis, this may have resulted in another form of cancer that worsened because of the delay. 

If you were the victim of a cancer diagnosis when you have none at all, you could have been harmed by the treatments you have been given to date. We will consider the scope of your misdiagnosis when we review your case to determine how we should approach compensation negotiations.
