SBH Successfully Defends Radiologist
SBH attorneys Mark Smith and Garrett Wulfsohn successfully defended a radiologist and her group arising from the death of a 56 year old woman. Plaintiff alleged the Defendants failed to recommend surgical biopsy following an attempted stereotactic biopsy in light of the patient’s medical history and prior mammogram findings. The patient was subsequently diagnosed with breast cancer, which metastasized to her brain and caused her death. Plaintiff asked the jury to award damages in excess of $8 million. The case was tried in the Circuit Court of Will County.
