Mistakes made by a medical professional aren’t generally like mistakes made by others. Their mistakes, in fact, have the ability to be life-threatening to a patient if the mistake is serious enough.

Neil Senna, from Billerica, Massachusetts, had been diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2011; three years later, on New Year’s Eve 2014, he passed away. The family believes that medical professionals failed to diagnosis Neil and that had they caught the cancer sooner, it would have been treatable. The family has since filed a medical malpractice claim against Dr. Ashok Joshi of the Billerica Medical and Health Center in the Lowell, Massachusetts Superior Court alleging that it was their negligence and misdiagnosis that led to Mr. Senna’s passing away.
The jury determined that the misdiagnosis was a significant factor in the victim’s death and awarded his family $4.2 million. Both children will be receiving $1.5 million for present and future losses, while Mr. Senna’s estate will receive the remaining $1.2 million. The jury made their decision after two doctors testified that, in the case of Mr. Senna’s treatment, there was sufficient evidence to prove negligence. The case was handled by the Boston law firm of Lubin & Meyer PC.
