Ob Gyn Fails To Properly Diagnose And Treat Breast Cancer Patient

Our client presented to her OB/GYN with a strong history of breast cancer and upon her discovery of a lump during a self-breast exam. The lump was palpated by her OB/GYN and she was told the lump was of no clinical significance. She had a mammogram which was interpreted as normal. Within months, after returning to her OB/GYN for a routine gynecological exam, her breast lump was again felt by her doctor and again she was assured it was not cancerous. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 15 months later. Rosen Louik & Perry proved that the radiologist had misinterpreted the original mammogram and that her OB/GYN was obligated to biopsy any palpable lump not explained as benign on a mammogram. The case settled for $1,125,000.00.

Improperly Placed Gastronomy Tube Leads to Severe Health Conditions

Our client needed his percutaneous endoscopic gastronomy tube (PEG tube) replaced. A new PEG tube was improperly placed in the client's peritoneal cavity rather than his stomach, causing extensive peritonitis and free air. A second operation was needed to correct the misplaced PEG tube. As a result of the doctor's negligence in misplacing the tube, the client developed numerous, severe health conditions including, MRSA, VRE of his G tube, multiple episodes of C. Diff, chronic constipation, tube feeding, aphagia, and malnutrition. The case settled for $750,000.00. 

Neurosurgeon Removes Too Much Brain Tissue Leaving Young Girl in Vegetative State

This young girl went into a persistent vegetative state after a neurosurgeon performed a two-staged resection of a pilocytic astrocytoma, a brain tumor that occurs predominantly in children and involves the midline, basal, and posterior fossa structures. It is, in general, considered a benign and very treatable tumor of childhood. This tumor was located within the client's thalamus. Following the second stage of this surgery, the client did not awaken, and it was determined that the surgeon had mistakenly removed extensive tissue from the child's midbrain and pons. Rosen Louik & Perry, malpractice lawyers of Pittsburgh, represented the victim in court. This case settled, after six days of trial, for $8,000,000.00.
