MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Shelby County jury has reached one of the largest medical malpractice verdicts ever in the state of Tennessee.

The nearly $24 million verdict was awarded Friday afternoon to Courtney and Robert Hill, residents of DeSoto County.

Hill's lawsuit claimed her doctor, Dr. Claudia Moise, and her clinic, OB-GYN Specialists P.C. of Memphis, failed to diagnosis a lump Hall complained about over the course of 18 months.  The lump turned out to be breast cancer.

"All that Courtney hopes is that it will help physicians remember that further testing is required," said Hill's attorney, Will Railford.

Moise's attorney said he did not feel it was appropriate to comment on the case at this time.

Railford said he expected the doctor and her clinic to appeal the verdict. 

Hear much more about this case, and Hill's repeated attempts to get diagnosed, tonight on Action News 5 at 10.
