Safety Management Steps Taken by Insured to Make Similar Occurrence Less Likely
An independent surgical expert opined that the physcian met the standard of care and that the injury was a well known and recognized complication of the procedure for which informed consent was obtained prior to the surgery. An independent oncological expert was retained and opined that the patient lived beyond the statistical survival rate for that type of cancer; therefore, the delay in diagnosis did not cause his death. However; for business reasons the case was settled at mediation rather than risk the uncertainty of trial.
