A Berks County jury has awarded $9.6 million to a 15-year-old girl who sued Reading Hospital for failing to diagnose her cervical cancer in a timely manner.

The trial lasted eight days in the courtroom of Judge Madelyn Fudeman of the Berks County Court of Common Pleas. The jury deliberated over the course of two days. The girl, identified as L.M. in court papers, first went to the hospital in 2014 complaining of vaginal bleeding, but it wasn’t until 2016 that she was diagnosed with cancer, at age 11.
