Rawls Law Group is pleased to report that we secured a $210,000 settlement from the Department of Veterans Affairs for a veteran whose prostate cancer went undiagnosed for over a year by his medical providers at the Palo Alto VA Medical Center in California.
Our client’s prostate cancer should have been detected and diagnosed much sooner than it was. Instead, the VA allowed him to fall through the cracks, and more than a year went by before the VA finally realized their mistake. However, by the time it was realized, the cancer had progressed and required additional treatment, which would not have been necessary had the cancer been diagnosed in a timely and appropriate manner.
We took on his case and aggressively pursued the claim. After many months, the VA finally agreed to settle the case for $210,000. Our client now has some additional funds to help him and his family as he continues to battle this cancer.
