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.The doctor paid money to our client's family to compensate for their loss.
