The loss of a loved one is undoubtedly a distressing and tragic time for the family. But, what happens when the death was caused because of the negligent act of a medical professional? Such experiences can be extremely upsetting and traumatic for the family members and for this reason, it is essential that they seek access to justice.
When we get sick or get injured, we turn to doctors to heal us and to make us healthy. When the disease or injury is serious, we even put our lives in the hands of the medical professionals trusting that they will make us better. We rely on medical professionals for quality healthcare. But sometimes, things don’t go as we want it to. Sometimes, medical and surgical errors are made by these professionals which results in serious consequences for the patients. Sometimes, it also results in death.
It may be possible for you to make a fatal medical negligence claim if a member of your family has died due to a medical professional’s negligence. If you believe that the correct actions were not taken to prevent the death, you must consider seeking legal advice as soon as possible.
Fatal medical negligence claims may arise under numerous circumstances including the following:
- Failure in diagnosing and treating heart disease
- Delay in diagnosing pulmonary embolisms
- Hospital falls
- Lack of adequate care provided to elderly patients
- Infant deaths and stillbirths
- Delayed diagnosis of a medical condition
- Hospital infections
- Reactions to medications
- Death of the mother or child during child birth
