Medical Malpractice – Delayed Cancer Diagnosis

We represented the family of a loving eighty-four year old woman whose primary care doctor failed to refer her for a urological evaluation for potential bladder cancer, despite numerous abnormal tests. Through our experts, we were able to show that the defendant doctor violated the standard of care by not referring the patient to a specialist for further evaluation. Our expert oncologist established that had the appropriate referral been made by the Defendant, the patient’s cancer would’ve been detected in time to save her life. The case resolved at mediation for a confidential amount.
