Wrongful Death as a Result of Medical Malpractice

Every year in the United States more than 225,000 people die from injuries resulting from medical malpractice.

    MIAMI, FL, July 27, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Every year in the United States more than 225,000 people die from injuries resulting from medical malpractice. Wrongful death as a result of medical malpractice is a terrible and tragic occurrence, yet, according to a Harvard Medical Practice study, only one in eight of these cases ever results in legal action. This is largely due to the fact that medical malpractice cases are infamously difficult to win, often resulting in more struggling and suffering than they are worth.

However, with an experienced and aggressive medical malpractice attorney on your side, you can seek justice for your loved one and secure the compensation your family will require to sufficiently recover after your tragic loss.

Medical Errors and Wrongful Death

Common causes of wrongful death due to medical malpractice include:
- Surgical errors
- Emergency room negligence
- Medication errors
- Missed, delayed, or wrong diagnosis
- Birth injuries
- Infections

The Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences estimates that around 98,000 people die as a direct result of hospital negligence and medical mistakes annually. Thousands more die from errors, misdiagnosis, and improper care at the hands of various medical professionals. When you lose a loved one due to medical malpractice, you have every right to seek compensation for end of life expenses, projected future financial contributions and earnings, the loss of a loved one, and other considerations. A medical malpractice attorney can work to ensure you are provided with the maximum compensation you are due.

Proving Negligence
The reason so few medical malpractice cases go to trial is that they are incredibly difficult to prove. The medical industry has attorneys and insurance companies that work around the clock to ensure these cases are quickly and quietly swept under the rug. To prove negligence and get proper compensation, you will need a medical malpractice attorney who knows what to look for in these complex cases.

Your attorney should have at his disposal a team of legal and medical experts who can comb through all of your loved one's medical records for any indication of malpractice. Once established, they will be able to build a solid case on your behalf and seek justice in a medical malpractice lawsuit. You deserve justice. An aggressive medical malpractice attorney can help see that justice is served.
