$750,000 Settlement for Misdiagnosis of Uterine Cancer

Carol Forte represented a 50-year-old woman who was told she had uterine cancer — and a total hysterectomy was recommended. The pathology results on the uterine tissue obtained during the hysterectomy proved that the woman never had cancer. As a result of having her uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries removed, the woman suffered from premature menopause, and needed to take hormone replacement therapy.
