$1,600,000 Settlement: Medical Malpractice

Our 57-year-old client routinely obtained annual checkups with her OBGYN so she was shocked to learn when she had Stage 3 ovarian cancer. Two years earlier, during a routine exam, her OBGYN noticed ovarian abnormalities and sent her for further testing. Reportedly the testing was negative and no treatment was prescribed. Unfortunately, the tests did in fact indicate cancer, which was only in Stage 1 at the time. Without realizing it, the abdominal pain she was feeling was the cancer growing unabated. Ultimately, she went to the hospital where she was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer and required immediate surgery and chemotherapy. The case was handled by Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein with co-counsel and it was settled for $1,600,000.
