$3.1 Million Settlement for Death from Misdiagnosis
K. v. Midwestern
In September, 1994, a 37-year-old woman went to her physician for a routine mammogram. The test was suspicious, and her doctor recommened a biopsy. Afterwards, the woman was told that the pathology was negative. She underwent another biopsy in October 1996 that revealed a cancerous tumor. In June 1998, she died of breast cancer.
