A 70-year-old woman suffered widespread and permanent sensory nerve damage as a result of an oncologist’s misdiagnosis of multiple myeloma, a type of bone marrow cancer. After undergoing a skeletal x-ray, the oncologist saw evidence of bone lesions, and targeted the woman for aggressive chemotherapy. However, after consulting with a specialist in multiple myeloma outside of her HMO, the woman discovered that she actually had a benign condition, not multiple myeloma. She immediately discontinued her cancer treatment, but due to the aggressive nature of the chemotherapy regimen, she had already sustained diffuse radial nerve neuropathy and polyneuropathy. Jeffrey A. Milman of Hodes Milman, LLP represented the plaintiff. Mediation resulted in a settlement of $375,000.
