$2.5 Million Settlement - Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death - Failure to Timely Diagnose Lung Cancer

Jason Rubin reached a $2.5 million settlement in a wrongful death case arising out of alleged medical malpractice in failing to timely diagnose decedent's lung cancer. Plaintiff claimed that the defendant pulmonologist failed to recommend or perform a lung biopsy on decedent after a CT scan demonstrated growth of a lung lesion. Plaintiff further claimed that the doctor failed to follow up with regard to a comparison of this CT scan to an earlier CT scan performed on decedent.

There was an approximate 11 month delay in the diagnosis of decedent's lung cancer, which allowed the disease to advance from Stage IA to IIIB, resulting in her death approximately 20 months after being diagnosed.
