Cynthia Craig represented a 55-year-old man whose physicians failed to advise him that an X-ray they had ordered for a rib injury showed signs of lung cancer. This failure lead to a 20 month delay in the initiation of the man’s lung cancer treatment; allowing the disease process to progress, and worsening his prognosis. Ultimately, the man died from the lung cancer.
