The firm obtained a $500,000 settlement from the primary care physician who misread three chest x-rays of a 59-year-old man taken between January 1999 and October 2000, resulting in a 22-month delay in the diagnosis of lung cancer, thus allowing his Stage IA lung cancer to progress to Stage IIIA at diagnosis.
