Know Your Rights If You Are Suffering From A Delayed Diagnosis Of Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is becoming a more prominent problem in our society, both as a result of environmental factors, as well as a result of the improper management of tanning salons. Unfortunately, many doctors are not adept at detecting skin cancer in its early stages, and many tanning salon operators do not follow proper procedures and expose customers to unsafe levels of radiation.
Located in Cleveland, Ohio, the law firm of Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., is here to help you if your doctor failed to accurately diagnose your skin cancer or there was an unreasonable delay in your diagnosis. We can also help if you have been exposed to high levels of radiation through the use of tanning beds. Contact us today to speak with an attorney about your options during a free phone consultation.

We Only Collect If You Collect
Our attorneys can help you if a doctor failed to diagnose any kind of skin cancer, including:
- Basal cell carcinoma
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Malignant melanoma
Additionally, many people are unaware of the hazards associated with indoor tanning beds. According to a study conducted by the University of Minnesota, people who use tanning beds are 1.74 times more likely to develop a melanoma than those who do not. In fact, tanning beds are thought to be so dangerous that the International Agency for Research on Cancer, as part of the World Health Organization, has classified these machines as being carcinogenic to humans.
Furthermore, many primary care physicians do not know how to properly evaluate moles, patches and other skin irregularities. The results of their errors can be skin cancer that goes undetected and spreads. In some cases, this failure to diagnose can become fatal.
Our firm is committed to helping people who have been harmed by tanning beds, misdiagnosed or when the diagnosis was missed altogether. We are a skilled medical malpractice firm who can help you pursue compensation for your injuries.
