Lou La Cava obtained a dismissal for a radiologist in a medical malpractice case
Lou La Cava obtained a dismissal of his client in a medical malpractice case filed in Hillsborough County. The Plaintiff alleged that the defendant radiologist was negligent in failing to identify on CT scan that a mass in the tail of the pancreas had enlarged from a mass in the same area on a previous CT scan. The plaintiff alleged that had enlargement of the mass been reported pancreatic cancer would have been diagnosed and treated resulting in an extended life expectancy. Another radiologist who was sued for not identifying a pancreatic mass on CT settled his case with the Plaintiff. Mr. La Cava’s client was dismissed from the case without paying any money in settlement.
