A renown paleontologist and evolutionary scientist died in May 2002 after three doctors failed to identify a lung lesion on x-ray that ultimately lead to his death, according to his family. The family alleges that the one centimetre lesion in his lung should have been detected by his treating doctors and radiologist. Their employing hospitals were also named as defendants. The lung lesion was subsequently diagnosed thirteen months after the initial lung x-ray when it had grown and spread to his liver, spleen and brain.
