$500,000 Settlement For Failure to Diagnose Prostate Cancer
Crowe & Mulvey negotiated a $500,000 settlement for a 50-year-old man who was not informed of his abnormal PSA test until two years after the fact. During the intervening time, he saw his doctor on several occasions, with no indication in the medical records that the abnormal result was ever discussed. As a result of the delay in diagnosis of his prostate cancer, he suffered metastatic cancer, and faced a premature death. With no family, the client wanted to resolve the case before his death, and was happy to be able to enjoy his remaining time.
