Patricia C. Schabath and Stephen D. McGraw were successful in obtaining summary disposition for a client in a loss of opportunity medical malpractice matter.
Kerr Russell argued on behalf of the physician in a complex failure to diagnose metastatic cancer case. The Plaintiff had not shown that her loss of opportunity to survive recurrent metastatic colorectal cancer was diminished by 50 percent. The Plaintiff argued the validity of the survival statistics that applied to the case. Ultimately, the Court determined that there was too much speculation in the case.
