Q: My dad was elderly when he died as a result of medical malpractice. Failure to diagnose cancer was the specific cause of my parents death. Yet, as an elderly person my dad didnt have a long time left to live. Should I still contact an Atlanta medical malpractice lawyer?
A:Yes. While your potential recovery may be different because your parent was elderly, there may still be reason to contact an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney.
Recovery for lost income is typically dependent on a person’s age and future earning capacity. Accordingly, that part of your potential recovery may be limited in an action for medical malpractice. Failure to diagnose, however, may result in other types of damages. You may be left with significant unpaid medical bills, for example. Your loved one may have needlessly suffered physical pain, and you and the rest of your family may be suffering emotional pain.
For these reasons, it is important to understand your rights and to contact an experienced Atlanta failure to diagnose attorney to discuss your options. You can reach an experienced lawyer today by calling 1.770.518.1133 to schedule a free consultation.
