A woman who had undergone a partial hysterectomy for fibroid tumors came to Malman Law for help after she had experienced a series of unfortunate medical events and a costly misdiagnosis. Following her hysterectomy, our client’s initial pathology report indicated that her tumors were benign. The next year, she had additional surgery to take out her ovaries and fallopian tubes.
A second pathology report came back and showed that she had a kind of cancer called malignant uterine sarcoma. Our legal team, leveraging the expertise of physicians, investigated. Upon review, we found that the original slide taken after her partial hysterectomy had indicated the presence of cancer.
Furthermore, the woman’s Ob/Gyn’s failure to refer her to a gynecologist for treatment radically complicated her condition. Our client is currently undergoing treatment for her cancer. Our team managed to win a $2 million medical malpractice verdict for her; the case has been appealed.
