Did You Lose a Loved One Because of Medical Negligence?
The death of a family member is always a tragedy, especially when the medical professionals to whom we entrust our relative’s health fail to uphold an appropriate standard of care. With the Journal of Patient Safety recently identifying medical negligence as the third leading cause of death in the United States, it’s important to know how a Jersey City wrongful death lawyer can help you pursue the compensation you deserve in the event that your loved one succumbed to faulty care.
Medical negligence can unfortunately occur at multiple points during the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from an illness or injury. Who can be held liable in cases of wrongful death arising from medical negligence will depend on the specific circumstances of your case, with potentially responsible parties including:
- Physicians and medical specialists
- The hospital, clinic, or other health care facility responsible for your loved one’s treatment
After investigating how negligence contributed to your relative’s passing, our wrongful death lawyer will aggressively pursue your family’s right to restitution for financial damages such as medical bills, funeral expenses, and lost income, as well as the emotional hardship of losing a loved one.
