Katherine Bendyke should have been diagnosed with cancer and her primary doctor failed to make the correct diagnosis and treat her for her cancer. This caused her to significantly lose her chance to survive this, and she ultimately did not. Lost chance of survival case was maintained instead of a straight wrongful death case because there are chances with any cancer that the person will die there from. The failure to diagnose and treat the cancer greatly reduces the Plaintiff’s likelihood of success, which is the basis of a lost chance of survival claim. We represented her in this matter and settled the case for a confidential sum.
