Lung Cancer Metastasizes Due to Delayed Treatment of Lung Nodules

Our client suffered from a right inguinal hernia and underwent a right inguinal hernia repair. As part of standard pre-operative testing, client underwent a chest x-ray. The x-ray was appropriately interpreted as demonstrating lung nodules that had increased in size from previous films. The radiologist suspected malignancy and recommended additional imaging and clinical correlation. Unfortunately, client was transferred to another hospital and the x-ray report was never acted upon by a physician. Two years later, this 77-year old client was diagnosed with incurable non-small cell lung cancer that, in the opinion of our experts, had metastasized because of the delay. A Pennsylvania Malpractice Lawyer at Rosen Louik & Perry represented the claim for the client. The case settled for $975,000.00
