Skin Cancer Expert Witness

Skin Cancer Expert Witness

There are three types of Skin Cancer: Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Melanoma.

Physicians treating skin cancer must perform within the standard of care. In a medical malpractice case, an expert witness will be called upon to testify as to the standard of care. With an increase incidence in skin cancer, there has been an increase in skin cancer related medical malpractice claims.

Although legal considerations can arise in the performance of any aspect of a medical dermatology practice, they are more likely to occur in the areas of diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers. Dr. Boris Zaks has been both an defense and plaintiff expert witness in Skin Cancer Litigation cases.

Malpractice claims can arise, according to David J Goldberg, M.D., J.D., from the following issues:

  • Wrong site
  • Functional outcome
  • Post-procedure outcome
  • Cosmetic Outcome
  • Recurrent tumor
  • Improper Consent
  • Delayed Diagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis
