While we know that no amount of money can replace what you have lost, we
also know that a sudden and wrongful death can result in significant financial
and emotional blow that can further exacerbate the stress and frustration
you are likely experiencing during this difficult time. Furthermore, doctors
are held to extremely high standards of conduct, and go through years
of extensive training to ensure that they can make the right decisions
regarding the treatment of their patients. We believe that doctors who
fail to make competent decisions should be held accountable for the implications
of their actions.
The following are common medical errors that can result in a wrongful death:
The aforementioned errors are avoidable and preventable if a doctor is
competent and attentive. Medical professionals are trained to know how
to respond to every scenario and are expected to keep a calm and cool
head in order to make rational and educated decisions. Their mistakes
and failures can have tragic consequences, and we want to help those who
have suffered accordingly.
