my mom, 73 years young, is the victim of medical malpractice. she had colon cancer that went undiagnosed for about two years, despite her symptoms, which include anemia, fainting spells, cramps, pains, etc. the doctors failed to perform adequate colonoscopies, and failed to follow thru with proper protocol such as a follow up barium exam, PET scan, or the like. ultimately, my mom had an operation to remove the cancerous section of her colon, but not before the cancer invaded her lymph nodes and metastacized in her liver. her treating doctor calls it stage 4. she is a widow, with two kids, ages 42 and 50. she is not gainfully employed. i would appreciate if someone could tell me the measure of damages in florida for this case. please do not answer by just telling me to call you. thanks.i am not adverse to calling a qualified attorney, the ultimate question is really whether this case is actionable, or whether florida laws limit malpractice so much as to make my moms case one that a florida malpractice attorney would not want to take.
