$1,250,000 Verdict

Patient’s cancer was misdiagnosed as an infectious cyst for one year.

The case for a misdiagnosis was brought against an otolaryngologist and a pathologist, then settled after discovery and prior to trial. The defendants did a needle aspiration, saying it was non-diagnostic and treated the patient’s cancer for one year as an infectious cyst. Unfortunately, they later realized the patient had cancer. The patient died. (Attorney Paul O’Connor handled the case.)
