Wrongful death following failure to report lung mass

Pre-trial settlement of medical malpractice case for widow against radiologist and his medical practice. The client's fifty-seven year-old husband had undergone an abdominal CT scan relative to gastrointestinal issues.  The CT scan incidentally revealed a suspicious mass in the patient’s lung which was missed by the radiologist and never reported to the patient until it was found on a subsequent scan, resulting in a delay in diagnosis of lung cancer for nearly a year and a half.  He underwent a resection, but the cancer returned months later. The patient was subsequently diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer and died the following year.

Traumatic brain injury in pedestrian crosswalk crash

Settlement on behalf of client injured when he was struck by a car while in the crosswalk on the way to the Braintree MBTA Station.  The client suffered a traumatic brain injury and, together with the spouse, brought a claim against the driver for his negligence in causing the accident.
