Medical Malpractice Death Claims
When a loved one dies while under the care of a hospital or medical provider, families are shocked and devastated. Upon learning that their loved one’s death is due to negligence and could have been prevented, their sadness might easily turn to anger and disbelief. As a complex and often contentious area of law, medical malpractice claims cover a wide range of mistakes, including neglect and abuse. Examples of medical malpractice cases are listed below:
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Failure to order appropriate tests
- Failure or inconsistency in monitoring a patient’s condition
- Nursing negligence
- Error while performing lab work
- Failure to treat a patient
- Delayed treatment of a patient
- Miscommunication among healthcare providers
- Administrative error
- Treatment performed by untrained staff
- Prematurely discharging a patient from a hospital
In addition to negligence involving medical personnel and staff, surgical errors may also contribute to the death of a patient. Surgical mistakes are sometimes preventable. Consider the following:
- Allergic reaction to anesthesia or medication given during surgery
- Prolonged surgery
- Improper surgical techniques
- Damage to internal organs
- Internal bleeding
- Ineffective post-operative procedures that cause infection
