“If people have immunity, there’s less incentive to practice to the standard of care if you are not faced with potential financial consequences of malpractice,” Bell said.

Bell said while he has professional concern for the Daniel case, his interest is also deeply personal: his brother Noland Bell, a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan who served in the Army National Guard, died of Stage IV lung cancer after physicians failed to do initial tests when he first exhibited symptoms.

“My personal experience when I was active duty is the quality of physicians in the overall hospitals was very good,” he said. “But my brother’s case was completely preventable if they had diagnosed him a year and a half earlier when he first exhibited symptoms. There needs to be a recourse, a consequence, to ensure these things don’t happen again.”
