Wrongful death & medical malpractice
If your loved one passed away due to a doctor’s negligence, you may consider talking with an attorney to explore your legal options. Of course, recovering compensation will never fill the void of losing your loved one in such a tragic way, but it can help ease some of the financial burdens associated with the death. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of a medical professional, it is important to have a compassionate and experienced legal team on your side. The wrongful death attorneys at Friedman Schuman are dedicated to helping you find justice in this tragic time.
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. Fortunately, in a successful wrongful death case, we can recover compensation to help offset those financial burdens.
