The Supreme Court in Ohio has recently changed the way that medical malpractice cases are handled. A Lawyer describes that the state will now consider emotional distress caused by the injury when deciding on the level of compensation to be awarded.
Between 1997 and 2004, a female patient attended Reflections Breast Health Center every year. This clinic was owned and operated by Radiology and Imaging Services Inc. She visited the clinic every year to have annually mammograms. All of the mammograms were inspected by professionals and decided that they were normal. A mammogram in 2003 was said to be clear of any signs of cancer explains a doctor.
However, in mid-2004 the patient discovered a lump in her left breast. She mentioned this to her physician. She was hen referred back to Reflections for tests. The film found that the mass was almost certainly cancerous. Expert witnesses from The Bronx and Staten Island said that between 2003 and 2004 he mass had grown from 1cm to 2cm. A biopsy of the mass was done and this found that it was malignant.
