Gerald Toner successfully defended a local radiologist in a failure to diagnose lung cancer case. The Plaintiffs alleged that the local radiologist deviated from the standard of care in his interpretation of an x-ray film, which allegedly revealed a malignant lung tumor. The lung cancer subsequently metastasized which led to the Plaintiff’s death. The Defense successfully argued the x-ray was interpreted correctly. The jury agreed and found in the radiologist’s favor.
