Baine Kerr and Kim Hult win largest breast cancer jury verdict in Colorado history
Oct 1, 2003
In October 2003, judgment was entered on a Boulder jury verdict for $ 2.1 million in the wrongful death case of Grundstrom v. Leibovitz, et al. This was the largest jury verdict in a breast cancer case in Colorado history, the largest Colorado medical malpractice case in 2003, and the fourth largest collected jury verdict of any kind in the history of Boulder County. The verdict followed a complex and compelling 3-week trial that featured dozens of nationally known cancer experts. Baine Kerr and Kim Hult represented the young, widowed husband and his two small children, who lost their wife and mother after she died from cancer left behind and never radiated after removal of a chest wall lump.
