Radiology Inc. Sued for Negligence

Mary K. De Los Santos is suing Radiology Inc. claiming it was negligent in recognizing and diagnosing a probable malignant mass. Another defendants in this suit are Drs. Grant D. Petty and Charles M. Siegler. According to the suit, on Oct. 17, 2007, and on Nov. 25, 2008, the defendants failed to recognize, diagnose and detect a probable malignant mass in De Los Santos' right breast and failed to recommend immediate post mammogram ultrasound study and/or biology of the right breast. De Los Santos claims because of the defendants' failure, she was required to have a right and left breast mastectomy.
“The defendants failed to exercise a degree of care, skill and learning required or expected from reasonable, prudent health care professionals, according to the suit.” De Los Santos is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest.
