A wrongful death action is typically filed by the executor of the decedent's estate with the assistance of a wrongful death attorney.
Renewed pharmacy professor and medical author, Joe Graedon, writes that more than 500,000 Americans die each year due to doctor errors. When a patient dies as a result of negligence, it may be the basis for a wrongful death lawsuit.
A wrongful death can occur due to medical malpractice, automobile accidents, workplace injuries, occupational exposure, defective products, airline accidents or criminal behavior. A thorough understanding of the law in each area is essential for a successful outcome.
Dean Piermattei and David Dowling have handled wrongful death cases for over 55 years combined. Some examples include death due to anesthesia error during surgery, death due to defective products, death due to automobile accidents, death due to criminal behavior, death due to medication errors and death occurring as a result of nursing home malpractice.
Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim
In order to prosecute a malpractice claim, it is necessary to seek advice from medical experts. Due to the highly technical nature of medical malpractice litigation, it is usually best to retain an attorney who specializes in medical malpractice law, and who has the resources necessary to develop your case, hire appropriate experts and, if necessary, take your case to trial.
You need to bring the action to attention as soon as possible after discovery of the error to meet statutes of limitation requirements. Remember that just because the doctor makes an error does not mean that he is negligent. The case must contain certain elements, which an experienced personal injury lawyer can identify if present.
If you or a close family member suffered fatal injuries due to the negligence of another party, you should contact an attorney experienced in wrongful death who has successfully handled these types of cases and who will represent you with experience, dedication and tenacity.
