$975,000 Settlement


A re-read of the 2011 pap smear revealed that the 2011 pap smear was not, in fact, normal and that there was a failure to diagnose atypical squamous cells.

The laboratory carried only $1,000,000 in coverage with no excess insurance. During the early stage of this case, a settlement was reached with the laboratory in the sum of $975,000.

The case continues against the oncologic surgeon and the hospital for improperly managing the cervical cancer once it was diagnosed.
