Cancer diagnosis delayed by prison officers’ failure to take him to medical attention
Our client was in custody when he noticed that he had a tumour. Justice Health booked an appointment for him to see the doctor. However, Corrective Services failed to take him to his appointments. KS did not receive medical attention for over a year. Finally, when officers did transfer him, they took him to the hospital where he learned that he had cancer.
Consequently, KS sued Corrective Services for psychiatric injury. We represented KS in his civil claim. In conclusion, we successfully settled the lawsuit.
