Our client was a 45 year-old sanitation worker who succumbed to cancer of the bladder. He had originally complained of left side pain and blood in the urine (hematuria) but his medical work-up at his health-care clinic, including an endoscopic procedure, showed the possible passage of stones but no abnormality within the bladder. When the hematuria continued, a second scan was performed but was misinterpreted as “normal”. Months later, our client was hospitalized and advanced stage cancer of the bladder was diagnosed, eventually leading to his death. The defense argued that even a timely diagnosis would not have changed the unfortunate outcome. Through our experts, we argued that the late diagnosis deprived this gentleman of a reasonable opportunity to fight back against the disease and the case settled for $925,000.
