Case Results

Estate of Urbanski v. Lerner, MD

Verdict: $1,500,000

The plaintiff husband sued for the wrongful death of his wife, a fifty-three-year-old waitress, alleging that she died from a delay in diagnosis of breast cancer because the defendant internist failed to recommend routine annual screening mammograms to her after her age 50. The plaintiff argued that a routine screening mammogram would have likely detected her asymptomatic breast cancer two years earlier when it was 95% curable with treatment.
