Have you lost a loved one in a recent personal injury matter? Call us so we can guide you through this painful and complicated process. Losing a loved one is never easy, especially when it is the fault of others. Wrongful death lawsuits are normally pursued by the deceased victim's family. Generally, immediate family members of the deceased can file a wrongful death claim, meaning that in most cases, the parents, spouse or the children of the wrongful death victim can sue. In order to bring a wrongful death action, a death must have been caused by a defective product, medical malpractice, pharmaceutical drug defects, the negligent or reckless act of a person, or a number of other situations. Family members of the victim seek legal assistance to receive the compensation their loved ones are entitled. If damages are awarded, they will cover the financial costs for the present and the future, as well as emotional costs. Understanding the laws that surround wrongful death cases can be complex. If you feel you have the basis for a wrongful death suit, call our office or fill out our FREE CASE REVIEW form.

Medical malpractice is the result of a health care provider's failure to provide the expected standard of care. When a physician is determined to be negligent, it means that he or she has failed to use the same degree of skill and learning, under the same or similar circumstances, that are used by other members of the medical profession. Some of the more common malpractice instances are when the physician fails to timely diagnose and order appropriate treatment, does not order necessary tests and proper medication, fails to consult with specialist and improper surgical procedures. Medical malpractice claims are one of the most difficult areas of litigation, and as such it is important to obtain an attorney as soon as the malpractice occurs or is discovered.
