Defense Verdict in an Admitted Negligence Case

October 21, 2014

Issue

Client admitted that an x-ray was misinterpreted causing the delay in the diagnosis of cancer.

Our Approach

Through the use of well-credentialed and highly credible oncological experts we were able to convince the jury that our client was entitled to a defense verdict notwithstanding admitted negligence. The jury concluded that the inadvertent error was not the cause of the patient’s death but instead the death was due to a very aggressive cancer.

Results

Our client did not want to settle the case arising from a misinterpretation of an x-ray when the facts demonstrated that the death was caused by an aggressive tumor rather than a delay in the diagnosis of the cancer.
