Record-setting $14 Million Medical Malpractice Settlement in Laboratory Error Case in Massachusetts

Lab Error Results in Advanced Cancer at Diagnosis

Attorneys Andrew C. Meyer, Jr., William J. Thompson, and Maria L. Mazur achieved a record setting laboratory error settlement in a case that resulted in a patient's advanced cancer at the time of diagnosis. 

The case involved a lab result that was reported as normal, but was not. The plaintiff was not notified of the error, which went undiscovered for a number of years until the plaintiff was diagnosed with advanced cancer.

The case, which was resolved in just over a year, involved aggressive discovery as to how the lab error occurred, and settled for $14 million at mediation.
