A Misdiagnosis Can Cost More Than Just MoneyDecember 1, 2016
When “Stuart” (not a real person) heard the word “cancer” from his doctor, his mind reeled. What came next was even worse: He had an aggressive form of pancreatic cancer that would probably end his life within the year.
After leaving the doctor’s office, Stuart solemnly accepted the reality of his situation. With the help of his wife, he prepared for what seemed to be the inevitable, taking frequent time off from his job and getting his affairs in order. Sadly, a few bad habits crept back into his life, and he spent more than a few nights with a bottle, quietly soothing his troubled mind with alcohol.
As the months ticked by, Stuart noticed something odd. Though emotionally devastated, he wasn’t feeling any worse physically. His wife suggested he visit another doctor, and when he did so, he got even more shocking news. He did have cancer, but it was of a more benign and treatable form. With proper care, he could still live a long and active life, and possibly even beat the disease.
It turned out that Stuart’s previous doctor had misdiagnosed his condition before even receiving the proper pathology reports. Infuriated, Stuart filed a medical malpractice suit against the doctor.
Depressed and still needing to cover the cost of his cancer treatment, Stuart wasn’t sure he had the resources needed to provide for his family, cover his medical bills, and wage a long legal battle with his former doctor. His lawyer suggested he contact USClaims to help him stabilize his finances while he concentrated on his recovery.
