Lent vs. Uniontown Hospital

Joshua L. Berger

Case Conclusion Date:May 1, 2005

Practice Area:Medical Malpractice

Outcome:Confidential Settlement

Description:We filed a case against a doctor and hospital for failing to diagnose our client's breast cancer. During the case, we discovered that our client previously had a mammogram and a radiologist doctor saw calcifications on the mammogram and concluded that those calcifications were not cancer. That was a misdiagnosis. He did not order a biopsy of the calcifications or any followup. As a result, our client's cancer spread and our client died. We obtained the mammogram and discovered that those calcifications were very suspicious for breast cancer and should have been biopsied.
