It is true that failure to diagnose attorneys cannot bring back your loved one who has died as a result of cancer malpractice. The best the legal system can do to compensate you for your loss is to provide you with monetary damages. Our failure to diagnose lawyers know that money alone is not going to change what happened to your family, but we believe that you may have good reasons to file a cancer malpractice wrongful death case and none of those reasons have to do with greed.

Compensation in a Wrongful Death Case
Medical malpractice wrongful death law seeks to compensate you for injuries that you have suffered. It is not intended to provide you with a windfall or a way to profit from your loved one’s death. Specifically, wrongful death compensation may include:
  • Money for outstanding bills. Bills may include medical expenses and funeral costs, for example.
  • Recovery for lost income. If your loved one, or you, were unable to work because of the misdiagnosis of cancer, then you may be compensated for the lost income. This may also include the future lost income that your loved one may have earned had he or she lived.
  • Damages for your loved one’s pain and your suffering. Money is an imperfect compensation for non-economic losses, but it is the best that can be done.
