Evaluating Wrongful Death

Evaluating Wrongful Death

Three very important areas to look at whenever you’re evaluating wrongful death would be misdiagnosis of a heart attack, misdiagnosis of cancer, or medication error. Let’s talk about misdiagnosis first.

Once of the most important evaluations in misdiagnosis is for a nationally recognized attorney to look at your medical records, as well as your X-rays. In many cases, what is not known is that the physicians could have diagnosed your heart attack or especially your cancer, many months or ever years before it was diagnosed.

Another area of wrongful death to examine is medication errors. There are literally tens of thousands of medication errors that occur throughout the country every year. They would include medication errors that occur when you are in the hospital, as well as when you receive your medication from a pharmacy. Medication errors can cause wrongful death, brain damage and other severe injury. Did medical negligence lead to your loved one‘s death?

Losing a loved one is always heartbreaking, but finding out that medical negligence played a role in the death of that person can be devastating. Misdiagnosis and medication errors are among the leading causes of wrongful death, but you may also have a claim if your loved one died as a result of:

  • Surgical mistakes

  • Failure to monitor a patient

  • Undiagnosed infections

  • Defective medical devices or drugs

  • Anesthesia errors

  • Improper behavior by a doctor
