Ross Feller Casey, one of the nation’s top personal injury law firms, has recovered more than $1 billion on behalf of its clients over the last five years alone, including numerous multimillion-dollar lawsuits involving the failure to timely diagnose and treat all types of cancer.

The most recent verdict was also a record-setter.

Founding partner Matt Casey won what is reported to be the largest known verdict in the history of Chester County, Pa. — $19.16 million in a case involving the failure to diagnose and treat breast cancer in a young woman.

During the trial in July 2022, Casey convinced the jury that medical personnel failed to send the woman, then 22, for a proper diagnostic workup after she presented to the office not once but twice in as many weeks with complaints of a palpable mass in her right breast. Had that been done, her cancer would have been diagnosed at an earlier point, before it invaded her lymph nodes, and she would have had a much better chance of being cured. Instead, due to a 9-month delay caused by medical negligence, her life expectancy has been greatly diminished.

The impressive list of other cancer lawsuits successfully litigated by Ross Feller Casey attorneys include:

  • $11 million recovered for the failure to timely diagnose a young child’s brain cancer
  • $9.6 million verdict for the failure to timely diagnose cervical cancer in a young girl
  • $7 million recovery for the failure to timely diagnose and treat pediatric cancer
  • $6 million recovery for a delay in diagnosing a cancerous tumor
  • $5.5 million recovery for the family of a woman whose cervical cancer spread as a result of a misread Pap smear
  • $5 million recovery for a woman whose breast cancer advanced because doctors failed to biopsy a suspicious lump
  • $4.4 million recovery for the family of a woman whose lung cancer advanced because doctors didn’t act on the results of a suspicious chest X-ray
  • $4 million recovery for the failure to timely diagnose and treat colon cancer

The firm has a team of nationally recognized and board-certified physicians right on staff. This uniquely positions the firm to thoroughly investigate such potential failure to diagnose cancer lawsuits and to detect negligence on the part of health-care providers.

About 13.7 million people across the U.S. are living with cancer and another 1.7 million are expected to learn they have some type of the disease this year, according to the American Cancer Society.

What’s worse than being diagnosed with cancer? Not being diagnosed when you actually have it.

Many types of cancer are treatable when detected early on - breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, testicular cancer, and renal-kidney cancer, to name a few.

Each year, about 580,000 Americans die from cancer, and thousands of them had lost valuable treatment time because of a doctor’s negligence in failing to diagnose the disease.

Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer and melanoma malpractice sometimes occurs because the doctor does not assign enough importance to the patient’s complaints or delays in referring the patient to specialists. Doctors may fail to do testing, including MRIs, PSA tests for prostate and mammograms. The radiologist may misread the test results, or the laboratory technician may err in evaluating the biopsy.

Even when tests are done and evaluated correctly, the oncologist needs to recommend the proper treatment. Any number of failures is possible in the sequences of steps that should be followed according to the reasonable standard of care the medical profession sets for cancer and melanoma patients. This can lead to cancer or melanoma misdiagnosis.
