Widow of North Okanagan man sues doctors,…

Eric Nolting, 38, died in 2012 after a battle with cancerIt’s not getting any easier for the family of a North Okanagan man who died after doctors allegedly failed to inform him of a positive cancer diagnosis in 2007.

Eric Nolting’s widow was also denied a $1 million life insurance claim because of it.

According to court documents, the payment was denied on the basis that Armstrong man Eric Nolting, who died of cancer in 2012 at the age of 38, failed to disclose aspects of his medical history during an interview with The Co-Operators Life Insurance Company in 2011.

A lawsuit filed against his doctors and the Interior Health Authority by his wife, Shannon Nolting, alleges he couldn’t have told them what he didn’t know himself at the time.

Nolting, a commercial pilot, went to the doctor in 2007 for treatment of a bleeding mole, and was told he would only be contacted if there were concerns with the test results. Unbeknownst to him, the mole tested positive for cancer. He didn’t find out about the missed diagnosis until 2012, when he went to the doctor about night sweats and lethargy.

Nolting sued his doctors and the Interior Health Authority, but died before the case was heard. His wife is continuing to fight the legal battle, and in November 2016, she filed an updated notice of claim against the doctors and the health authority that demands damages for the lost death benefits.

“As a result of the negligence of the defendants… and their consequential failure to advise the deceased of the results of the pathology report… the deceased innocently failed to disclose (the diagnosis),” the lawsuit states.

"As the sole beneficiary, Shannon Nolting was supposed to receive a payment of $1 million upon his death. " Read more at

We were encouraged by our agent to switch from our bank mortgage insurance to term life insurance. My husband died suddenly two months later and my claim was denied due to 'pre existing conditions' not directly related to his cause of death. We had dealt with this company for 40 years and I was left high and dry. Had we stayed with our bank mortgage insurance I would be mortgage free now.
