Lumley vs. Jutkowitz, M.D. (Bridgeport Superior Court—filed May 4, 2016) For more than a year, the plaintiff was under the defendant’s medical care for pain in her left ankle.  At her very first visit, the defendant ordered imaging studies that were read as abnormal and a radiologist recommended a follow up imaging study if symptoms persisted. Despite the plaintiff contacting the defendant’s office numerous times over the next several weeks and months complaining of increased pain and swelling in her left ankle and calf, the defendant doctor ordered no further studies, despite the orders of the radiologist. Several months later, the plaintiff presented at St. Vincent’s Hospital with worsening symptoms and was diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis. The plaintiff later sought an opinion from an orthopedic surgeon who recognized a soft tissue mass in the left lower extremity. Upon further imaging—the same imaging recommended to Jutkowitz by the radiologist over a year earlier—a malignant sarcoma was discovered and an amputation of the plaintiff’s leg was required. The patient also had to undergo chemotherapy for Stage III malignant synovial sarcoma. Shortly and tragically thereafter, it was discovered the plaintiff’s cancer had metastasized to her lungs, making it Stage IV cancer–a diagnosis and a disease that would have been prevented if the proper standard of care was complied with by her doctor in the first place. The loss experienced by this plaintiff is enormous, with the lower left leg amputation being just the beginning of her needless pain and suffering.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
