The Medical Professionals Involved With Reviewing an X-Ray of Plaintiff’s Decedent’s Chest on Behalf of Decedent’s Employer Did Not Have a Duty to Inform the Decedent or His Physician of the Cancer Findings

The Fourth Department, in a full-fledged opinion by Justice DeJoseph, reversing Supreme Court, determined that the medical professionals involved with review of an x-ray of plaintiff’s decedent’s chest on behalf of plaintiff’s decedent’s employer did not have a duty to report the findings to the decedent or decedent’s physician. The mass that was seen on the x-ray apparently was cancer and plaintiff’s decedent was not informed. He later asked his employer, NYSEG, about the findings but by then the cancer was incurable. Kingsley v. Price, 2018 N.Y. Slip Op. 05088, Fourth Dept 7-6-18

New York appellate courts release, on average, between 150 and 200 decisions per week. The CasePrepPlus service summarizes the most significant decisions, which include substantive discussions of the facts and the law, into one-paragraph summaries, which are prefaced by succinct headings, allowing the reader to quickly decide whether a case is of interest. Each summary is linked to the full decision. Keeping up with the decisions released the week before, a process which could easily take an individual attorney numerous hours every week, takes only minutes with CasePrepPlus.

Summaries are written by Rochester-based attorney Bruce Freeman. For his bio, click here.
