Woman Suffers Incurable Breast Cancer Due to Delayed Diagnosis; Settled for $1,550,000
Hodes Milman Liebeck represented a 46 year-old woman suffering from incurable breast cancer with a less than one year life expectancy due to a delay in diagnosis. The plaintiff visited multiple doctors and underwent several screening mammograms from May 2007 to June 2009. Unfortunately, worrisome findings were not appreciated, and a further work up was not undertaken, resulting in a two-year delay in diagnosis. If she had been diagnosed in 2007, the likelihood of a cure would have been upwards of 70%. Hodes Milman Liebeck attorney’s obtained a $1,550,000 settlement on behalf of their client.
