Losing a loved one is understandably devastating. If your loved one passed away due to a doctor’s negligence, you may consider talking with an attorney to explore your legal options.

Causes and consequences of wrongful death

Wrongful death is often defined as the “death of an individual caused by the wrongful act or neglect or unlawful violence or negligence of another.” Wrongful death can occur in many different situations. However, there are specific causes of wrongful death that can result in medical malpractice. Some of these causes may include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Faulty medical devices
  • Poor post-operative care

If the decedent was the primary caretaker of a family, the repercussions may be amplified. Families may become void of not only a parent, spouse, or devoted family member, but they may also suffer from severe financial strains as a result of the death. Additionally, the family may be left with the unexpected burden of high medical bills and funeral costs that they were not financially prepared to endure.
