$1.1 Million Cancer Misdiagnosis Case

NYC Medical Malpractice Attorney Gary A. Silverstein Settles $1.1 Million Cancer Misdiagnosis Case

Aggressive melanoma spreads to victim's lymph nodes after 8-month delay in diagnosis.

The patient and their family came to the experienced New York City medical malpractice law firm of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP with a disturbingly typical case. A biopsy was taken on the patient's foot when an Atypical nevus was presented to the first dermatologist. That biopsy was interpreted to be benign. The patient was sent home without result.

Eight months later the family was having suspicions about the Atypical nevus as the patient's health deteriorated. A second opinion revealed that not only was this an aggressive melanoma, but it had spread to the patient's lymph nodes. Further, an independent, well-respected, third-party opinion reviewed the initial biopsy slides to reveal that they had been misinterpreted then. A routine excisional biopsy should have been performed at the time.

As a result of the melanoma having been misdiagnosed the patient missed out on critical treatment procedures and the cancer spreading to other parts of the body have greatly increased their chances for recurrences.

The case, handled by partner, New York medical malpractice attorney Gary A. Silverstein, settled during the second day of jury deliberations for $1.1 million.
