Man Sues Doctors Over Wifeís Death

Date Posted: 2000-04-29

An Urasoe man has sued doctors who treated his wifeís cancer, for negligence, seeking •66.5 million in damages. The manís then 36-year old wife was diagnosed with a stomach cancer and after seemingly succesful treatment was released from the hospital.

She then came for check-ups every three months. Two years later doctors discovered that the cancer had re-emerged and spread to her throat, lungs and brain and she died shortly afterwards.

The man sued the doctors and the hospital claiming that they had showed gross negligence by not discovering that the cancer had spread earlier, when treatment had been possible. It is highly unusual in Japan for patients to sue doctors or hospitals.
