Frequent Causes of Wrongful Death due to Medical Malpractice
While every case is unique, there are certain patterns that arise frequently in medical malpractice cases. As attorneys with decades of experience with wrongful death claims, we’ve seen these patterns come up often enough that we know where the most frequent problems arise.
- Emergency room negligence
- Surgical errors, including anesthesia mistakes
- Misdiagnoses, especially of cancer
- Prescription medicine errors
All of these problems can prove lethal. If your loved one has suffered because of one of these problems or any other medical malpractice error, speak to our wrongful death lawyers about your options.
The Compensation You are Entitled To
As the loved one of someone who has suffered a wrongful death, the law provides you the right to pursue several different forms of compensation. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of wrongful death law and can explain your options to you at your free initial consultation.
Every case is unique, but victims in a wrongful death case are usually entitled to pursue compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- End of life expenses, including funeral costs
- Future income lost
- Loss of benefits
- Loss of inheritance
- Projected financial contributions such as mortgage and tuition
- Pain and suffering for loss of a loved one
Every year tens of thousands of Americans are killed as a result of medical errors. But you’re not a statistic to us, and neither is your loved one. Our wrongful death attorneys will handle your case with care and compassion.
