$1,200,000 Recovery for Delay in Diagnosis of Kidney Cancer

William O. Crutchlow, Esq. of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP with offices in Edison, Toms River and Red Bank, New Jersey recently successfully recovered a $1,200,000 settlement for the Estate of a woman who died due to a delay in diagnosis of kidney cancer. The woman was in her early 60s when a small nodule was accidentally found in her kidney during an ultrasound procedure performed to evaluate an unrelated condition. Her physicians failed to recommend and accomplish appropriate follow up evaluation of the lesion over a period of years. At the time of diagnosis years after the initial discovery of the nodule, the then much larger mass was confirmed to be advanced Stage 4 cancer that had metastasized to her lungs. Our client fought the cancer as hard as she could, but unfortunately passed away from the disease.
