Charleston, SC: $ 6.9 million verdict. Mr. Fulda, Mrs. Perkins and Mr. Whetstone tried a medical malpractice case involving the failure of a radiologist to recognize and ultimately diagnose breast cancer on a mammogram. After a trial that lasted almost two weeks, a Charleston County jury awarded the patient and her husband a $ 6.9 million dollar verdict. The delay in diagnosis allowed the otherwise treatable cancer to spread and metastasize to other parts of the patient's body. The Plaintiff now has a terminal diagnosis.
