Loss Of Loved One To Wrongful Death Raises Many Questions
When a medical mistake results in an otherwise preventable death, family members rightfully want to know what happened and why. They realize, of course, that no legal action can bring back a deceased loved one. However, there are at least two compelling reasons to look into the facts behind a health care-related death:
- To determine whether there is cause to bring a wrongful death claim against a health care provider. A family that had been dependent on a deceased loved one’s contributions may have a valid claim for compensation.
- To help prevent more deaths under similar circumstances. In the course of an investigation and lawsuit, additional protective mechanisms may be put into place in a hospital, an emergency room, a medical clinic or a rehabilitation facility.
