Lawsuits Around Wrongful Death

Medical providers have a duty to act within the standard of care when caring for patients. One way they can violate that duty is by failing to adhere to the standard of care which results in a patient's death. There are many ways a medical provider could cause the death of a patient, including:

  • Radiologists failing to recognize abnormalities in imaging
  • Failing to take appropriate diagnostic tests
  • Medication Errors
  • Surgical Errors
  • Failing to recognize life-threatening conditions
  • Not taking an accurate medical history or examination
  • And others

It is important to recognize that not every death at a medical facility is a result of medical malpractice. In order for there to be a potential case, you must be able to prove that the doctor acted negligently and that the outcome would have been different if the doctor performed within the standard of care. This depends on the facts surrounding the medical care including the medical condition, what should have been done, and the probable success of treatment.

Common case examples of wrongful death:

  • Medication Errors
  • Surgical Errors
  • Failure to Refer to Specialist
  • And many others
