In this matter the law firm of Bonina & Bonina was able to achieve a $1.8 million dollar settlement on behalf of the surviving husband and two children of a woman who died as a result of a delay in diagnosing breast cancer.

Lung Cancer - $1.1 MILLION

In this matter the Med Law Team achieved a settlement of $1.1 million on behalf of a plaintiff who had a greatly shortened life expectancy as a result of a failure to diagnose lung cancer. In this matter the plaintiff had gone for pre-operative x-rays which revealed the presence of a suspicious mass in her lungs, however, her surgeon failed to follow-up on the findings thereby resulting in a one-year delay of the diagnosis of her cancer. This delay significantly shortened her life span by permitting the cancer to spread untreated for an extensive amount of time.
