We represented all the defendants in a medical malpractice and wrongful death action in which the plaintiff alleged that the defendants all failed to timely diagnose the 64-year-old decedent’s abdominal cancer. However, upon our motion for summary judgment, the court agreed with our argument that the decedent had been timely referred by one of the defendant physicians for a pelvic ultrasound and blood tests a year before the ultimate cancer diagnosis was made, but had failed to comply with those referrals, and indeed had failed to tell the defendants about the concerning results of a pelvic ultrasound she had previously undergone at a different facility nearly a year earlier, thus the progression of her cancer to an inoperable and incurable stage had not been caused by any act or failure to act on the part of the defendant doctors and hospital. The action was dismissed in its entirety.
