We trust medical professionals to “do no harm,” but sometimes a trip to the hospital, the medication prescribed to us or a medical device we’ve been instructed to use does more harm than good. When a medical professional makes a mistake, fails to follow proper protocol or neglects his or her duties, sometimes the patient pays the ultimate price.
A medical malpractice wrongful death claim may be appropriate if you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or wrongdoing of a doctor, hospital staff or other medical professional. Contact us to find out whether your family should pursue legal action in Florida.
When someone dies unexpectedly, there are many questions left unanswered. Who will take care of his or her spouse or children, both financially and in terms of day-to-day care? While no amount of financial compensation can account for your profound loss, it can help to answer some of the more pragmatic questions that come after the death of a family member. Settling issues of support and care can ease your mind for the future of your family.
We all want to trust our physicians and the organizations they work for, which makes medical malpractice wrongful death suits so emotionally difficult. Not only have you lost a dear family member, but your trust in these essential institutions is tarnished. While a death of any type is tragic, it is especially hurtful when those we trusted most cause it.
Medical malpractice wrongful death lawsuits can be quite complicated. There are different laws that apply to each malpractice and wrongful death suit, and you need a qualified and experienced Florida wrongful death attorney to successfully handle your case. There are statutes of limitations to consider, liability issues and a host of other factors to weigh.
