Kelley | Uustal attorneys Todd Falzone and Karina Rodrigues secured a $2 million settlement for the widow of a man who died after a radiologist misdiagnosed him in the emergency room. The case was set to go to trial when K|U attorneys discovered evidence that suggested the radiologist had not dedicated enough time to analyzing the patient’s scans. The radiology company and the hospital settled shortly after.
Mr. Falzone highlighted the importance of malpractice lawsuits in the face of new Florida laws that seek to limit such claims, “[hospital and doctors are] not doing it on purpose, but it makes them psychologically less careful if they don’t think that there’s a real threat from a lawyer.”
