one man's loss is another man's gain

I entirely agree that people can make gains by taking advantage of another man's gain.
However, being used is not the only that people suffer from loss.
If I were to die, at this very moment, I would like to think that nobody would gain anything from my untimely demise. However, I still would have lost my life.
Another situation is one where a person messed up, and many people actually suffer rather than gain. For instance, if I were to go to a hospital for surgery, and rather than insert the computer-brain interface chip I wanted (slightly tangential but it was the first thing that came to mind) and rather than be able to think at quantum speeds I suffered from sever headaches. Of course, I would sue the doctor, who did this to me. This would hurt the reputation of the hospital, the doctor, and even the procedure.
Who would gain in this situation?

That phrase describes a zero-sum game.
But real life is not a zero-sum game. Humans are all interconnected. We can create wealth, trade it fairly, and all end up better off. Once you understand this you can see that one man's loss is another man's loss and one man's gain is another man's gain.

its nice to know somebody else appreciates game theory.
Although some interactions may give the appearance of one +delta A= - delta B, in the end the interconnected society is truly a situation in which the loss of one is a loss of all.

I dont think that if a man loses someone in his family than another man gets them as they will have passed away so how is this statement truethey say when a person dies, or passes away, the soul continues to live and enters another body so as to give life to it. it is not scientifically true but still if we believe this statement then the person who has lost his/her family member, another man has gained a new family member, hasn't he?
