$1.1 Million Awarded In Malpractice Lawsuit
"I fell through the cracks"
A jury has awarded $1.1 million to a Grand Rapids couple who claim a Hibbing doctor failed to diagnose prostate cancer. Thomas L. Fritz, 61, a retired Cargill Inc. executive, and his wife, Pamela Fritz, received the unanimous verdict Friday morning in Minnesota District Court.
The seven-person jury found that Jack B. Greene, a St. Luke's family practice physician, failed to adequately care for Thomas Fritz after a routine exam revealed a slight risk of prostate cancer.
