Breast cancer must be diagnosed early and treatment to begin right away to increase the likelihood of a positive outcome. Delays in treatment caused by misdiagnosis bring all manner of unforeseen problems and costs, and not forgetting the emotional suffering that you and your loved ones have to deal with when your life expectancy has been affected by negligence.

Also, any future pain and suffering that you may experience will be taken into account alongside the loss of work and income related to your injury.
