Failure to Diagnose Cervical Cancer
Doe Plaintiff and Roe Healthcare Providers
The plaintiff visited various healthcare providers with signs and symptoms indicating that she had cancer of her cervix. Although a PAP test was administered and reported by the laboratory as abnormal, the document was misplaced.
As a result of the malpractice in connection with managing the clinical presentation as well as the laboratory result, the providers failed to follow up and the diagnosis of cancer was missed. Undetected, the cancer spread out of the plaintiff's cervix and was incurable at the time of trial.
This case settled shortly before trial for $1.1 million.
Resolution: $1.1 Million
