$3.1 Million Failure To Diagnose Settlement

Case Evaluation

The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny succeeded in negotiating a $3.1 million settlement on behalf of a client whose cancer went undiagnosed and ultimately resulted in death. The case was filed on behalf of the deceased client in a wrongful death claim due to medical malpractice and the failure to timely diagnose and treat cancer.

In this specific case, the defendant’s doctor completely failed to notice a suspicious mass on the client’s sonogram. The mass was cancerous and because of the oversight, it was allowed to grow untreated, metastasizing, and ultimately claiming the client’s life. What could have been a simple procedure to remove the mass before it posed a serious threat turned into a tragedy for the client’s family simply because the doctor failed to read the sonogram correctly. The absurdity of this sad event was felt by the legal team. James Lundy, a personal injury attorney from the firm, expressed his passion for obtaining justice on behalf of his client because “This should never have happened.”

The passion for justice drove the team to present a solid case against the defendant doctor. Lundy states, “With our outstanding medical experts and aggressive deposition techniques, we brought the defense to its knees.” Pretrial procedures and investigations were enough to gain a settlement out of the defense before even reaching court, sparing the plaintiff party the stress and costs of the trial while still securing a favorable outcome for such an unfortunate event.
