Medical treatment is intended to help, not harm. When a loved one dies as a result of medical malpractice, you might be able to recover wrongful death compensation. A wrongful death lawyer who also handles medical malpractice cases can help you fight for compensation for things like medical bills and lost wages.

Watching a loved one lose their life as a result of a medical professional’s mistake is a heart wrenching experience. A wrongful death lawyer fights to help you recover the compensation you need while also working to hold the negligent medical professional responsible for their actions.

When Medical Malpractice Results in Wrongful Death

Holding Negligent Health Care Providers Responsible

When you trust a health care provider with your medical treatment, you place your life into their hands. Unfortunately, that trust is sometimes misplaced. A patient’s health and finances can seriously suffer when a health care provider makes mistakes or fails to do their job correctly. Negligent medical treatment is known as medical malpractice. Medical malpractice turns into wrongful death when a medical mistake turns fatal.

Lots of different mistakes can result in a medical malpractice claim. Some of the most common include:

  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to treat
  • Anesthesia errors.

Any of these common forms of medical malpractice could result in a patient’s death. Doctors aren’t the only professionals who can be guilty of medical malpractice. A lawyer can help you bring a claim against health care professionals such as:

  • Doctors
  • Surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Pharmacists
  • EMTs
  • Dentists
  • Eye doctors
  • Chiropractors.

Medical malpractice is one of the most complicated areas of personal injury law. If you need financial help after a family member dies, consider choosing a lawyer with a track record of handling cases that involve both proving medical malpractice and recovering wrongful death compensation.
