Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Filed when Delayed Melanoma Diagnosis Results in Wrongful Death

July 13, 2007

Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. attorneys have filed a medical malpractice lawsuit on behalf of the daughter of a 59-year-old man whose wrongful death was the result of metastatic malignant melanoma. At issue is the care and treatment provided by a Lake County, Illinois, internist and dermatologist which resulted in delayed cancer diagnosis too advanced for the man’s life to be saved. The wrongful death lawsuit alleges that had the doctor complied with the standard of care, instead of violating it, the melanoma would have been diagnosed when the chances of successful treatment were much better.
