Four-Month Delay in Treatment of Gynecologic Cancer; Settled for $200,000
A 32-year old woman had surgery to remove a tumor. Pathology reports indicated the tumor was in fact, cancerous. She was mistakenly assured she was cancer-free. Several months later the woman returned complaining of increased adnominal bloating. She was referred to an oncologist and underwent surgery where a large cancerous tumor was removed. She began chemotherapy treatments and underwent multiple surgeries to remove remaining tumors. Hodes Milman Liebeck obtained a $200,000 dollar settlement on behalf of their client.
