$6.47 Million Verdict - Failure to Diagnose Lymphoma

We tried to verdict a medical malpractice case involving the failure of three chiropractors and physicians to diagnose our client's lymphoma for one year.

By the time the diagnosis was made, the cancer had invaded the spine and collapsed one of the vertebrae. A neurosurgeon operated on the spine, and in the process of removing the tumor he interfered with the blood supply. As a result, our client's legs were paralyzed. The jury found that all three doctors were negligent in failing to diagnose the cancer. Sophia Hererra v. St. Martin et al.
