A 57 year old woman was the victim of malpractice by an imaging centre. The medical imaging centre made an administrative error in the analysis of another patient’s biopsy sample and mistakenly and falsely informed her that she had serious cancer. The woman underwent numerous investigations and diagnostic biopsies and had some lumps removed from her neck, and sustained severe emotional and psychological trauma at the prospect of dealing with and dying from her diagnosis of serious cancer.
The woman contacted our office in August 2012. After a consultation with senior solicitor Mr Leslie Abboud who has over 30 years experience in negligence cases in the highly specialised filed of medical negligence, the woman decided to proceed with our firm.
Within a short period of time, Mr Leslie Abboud had acquired all the women’s clinical notes and hospital records. After their careful examination, Mr Abboud carefully developed the woman’s case by retaining expert doctors and acquiring their expert opinion on the harm caused to the woman by the Defendant’s malpractice.
Ever mindful of what’s in the best interest of the client, Mr Leslie Abboud was able to negotiate with the Defendant’s solicitors and settle the woman’s medical negligence claim of malpractice by an imaging centre before proceeding to hearing for $75,000.00. By settling the matter before hearing, Mr Leslie Abboud was able to save his client the stress and costs of a medical negligence case. The Plaintiff was overwhelmed by the diligence, compassion and professionalism she experienced throughout her case and is very pleased with the result.
