case-results: Misdiagnosis

$12 Million


A 42 year old mother of two died after the doctors in the ER chose not to perform a simple blood test that would have diagnosed the blood clot in her leg. Instead they sent her home with pain medication and the clot traveled to her heart causing her death.

Confidential Settlement


The patient was told she had breast cancer and as a result she decided to have a surgery to remove both breasts in order to avoid the cancer returning. After undergoing the surgery, she received a call saying the hospital had made a mistake. She never had breast cancer.
