Our client, from Vandergrift, Westmoreland County, had a chest x-ray that revealed a small mass in his right upper lung. Referred to a pulmonologist for further evaluation, our client underwent three CT scans of his lungs over a three year period. The purpose of the series of CT scans was to monitor the mass for any growth which would be indicative of cancer. Tragically, the pulmonologist forgot to review the CT scans that showed the lung mass was growing and spreading throughout our client's right lung and forgot to inform our client of these abnormal test results. While his lung cancer could have been diagnosed and treated at an early Stage, our client's lung cancer went undiagnosed and untreated for three years until reaching an advanced Stage, it caused our client's death.

We brought a wrongful death civil action in Allegheny County on behalf of our client's surviving wife and children. A settlement was reached with the insurance company of the physician.​​
