We put our faith in doctors to treat and cure every condition and disease that we and our loved ones experience. Doctors are limited, of course, in their ability to put an end to every illness and fully tend to every injury, and patients can pass on as a result. While there are many factors that are beyond any doctor’s control, not every death is unpreventable. Medical negligence, a common form of medical malpractice, entails a doctor, nurse, or specialist taking inadequate care of a patient, who later dies as a result of this negligence. In the video below, Tampa medical malpractice attorney Betsey Herd delves into the next steps that you should take if you believe that your loved one has suffered a death due to medical negligence.
Death Due To Medical Negligence
If you or someone you know suspects that a loved one was lost due to medical negligence, you should make sure than an autopsy or a post mortem study is conducted. It will be your responsibility in any potential claim to prove, more likely than not, what the cause of death was and that this cause was related to some action of the medical provider. It is near-impossible to prove that without an autopsy in 99.9% of all potential claims.
