Lung cancer is another type of cancer that we handle here at Zucker & Regev. From a legal perspective, medical malpractice cases involving lung cancer often involve two things. They often involve either the failure to properly work up a lung nodule that is picked up on imaging, or they involve the failure to recommend proper screening methods for patients who are often smokers. There are clear guidelines by medical societies regarding the proper screening that should be performed for patients who are at high risk for developing lung cancer and there are also clear guidelines with regards to working up abnormal findings on imaging studies.
