Thorbjorn Johansson went through inexplicable agony facing a lung cancer diagnosis, an uncertain future and having part of a vital organ removed all because his medical sample got mixed up with that of another patient at the hospital.
This mistake left him unable to carry on with his occupation of a building trades consultant. His physical endurance dropped and many times he felt out of breath.
The hospital did admit to their mistake in 2011. Now, he is planning to sue the hospital for causing irrevocable damage to his health and his career.
