Defense Verdict for Radiology Group
On April 1, 2022, Jack Shusted and Jacob Lehman obtained a defense verdict on behalf of their clients, two radiologists and a radiology practice after a week of trial in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
The trial centered on allegations that the two physician defendants had missed signs of a cancer recurrence in CT studies they read 3-4 years before a Stage IV recurrence was discovered. Mr. Shusted and Mr. Lehman were able to demonstrate that the physicians met the standard of care in all respects and that no action or inaction on their part increased the Plaintiff’s risk of harm. The jury found that both physicians met the standard of care in their practice. The demand prior to trial was $3 million dollars.
