Failure to Diagnose Prostate Cancer in New York
WRSMH attorney, Phil Russotti, obtained a $1.7 million settlement for a medical malpractice suit. Our client, an active man in his late 50's, contended that his internist failed to refer him to a urologist for further work-up after a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) test came back abnormally high. Therefore, we argued that Plaintiff's doctor failed to diagnose prostate cancer in a timely manner and as a result, it metastasized to his spine. We were able to settle before the scheduled trial date.
