New Mexico Lung Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers

According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the second most common form of cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the U.S. Given the prevalence and severity of this cancer type, a misdiagnosis can be devastating to New Mexico families. Depending on the type of lung cancer misdiagnosis, it can sometimes cost you or your loved one precious time. Dominguez Law has helped countless people in this very situation to hold medical professionals responsible when they have made such a grave error. 

Our experience in this practice area has helped our clients navigate the claim process’s complexities to realize a successful case outcome. As premier New Mexico cancer misdiagnosis lawyers, we fight aggressively for our clients who are victims of a severe and highly impactful medical error. A lung cancer misdiagnosis represents an egregious error that can delay critical treatment in some instances or result in the wrong treatment entirely in others. 

Types of Lung Cancer Diagnosis Errors

Unfortunately, there are many ways that doctors may render a lung cancer misdiagnosis. This can result in delayed or missed treatment entirely. Common types of lung cancer diagnosis errors include: 

  • Errors in reading imaging results
  • Confusion with other health conditions with similar symptoms
  • Failure to read imaging results in a timely manner
  • Failure to accurately gauge reported symptoms from patients
  • Failure to follow-up on diagnostic results

This form of medical malpractice is extremely harmful as it costs patients time that they do not have to combat a lung cancer diagnosis if they do, in fact, have lung cancer.
