Have you ever felt uncomfortable with the answer given to you by a doctor? Would you go get a second opinion if you felt you were right? Although doctors are expected to be the expert on medical subjects, they are not infallible.

The South Bend Tribune reports that a South Bend family recently won a medical malpractice lawsuit against the South Bend Medical Foundation. The court found that the practice was negligent in failing to diagnose abnormal precancerous cells that were visible on a patient’s lab results. The patient died of cervical cancer in 2000.

The medical review board found that the physician was negligent in failing to interpret results correctly. The victim’s family was awarded a settlement in the South Bend medical malpractice case.

If you suspect that you have been a victim of South Bend medical malpractice, the Indiana medical malpractice lawyers at Stewart & Stewart can help you.
