Detroit Wrongful Death Lawyers

Losing a loved one is never easy, and it can be even more difficult when you know that someone else’s preventable actions caused the death. Sadly, medical professionals whom we trust to improve our loved one’s health and wellbeing are all too often the people responsible for a person’s untimely and wrongful death. In these instances, a family is often left grieving the loss of a loved one, in addition to facing exorbitant costs due to medical bills, funeral costs, lost wages, and more.

At Detroit Personal Injury Attorneys, we understand just how traumatic it can be for families in Detroit to lose a loved one as the result of a medical professional’s negligence. Whether it was a nurse, doctor, hospital administration, or other related party, these professionals who fail to provide appropriate care, causing an innocent people’s untimely death, should be held accountable.

Medical Causes of Wrongful Death

The medical field is full of experts, who should rarely if ever, make critical errors that could lead to someone’s death. Unfortunately, there are some cases of medical malpractice, like the following, that can cause a wrongful death:

  • Failure to use anesthesia (or use of it incorrectly)
  • Surgical error
  • Pharmaceutical mistake / error in preparing or administering drugs
  • Abuse in hospitals / negligent staff
  • Failure to make an accurate diagnosis
  • Inadequate / delayed treatment
  • Emergency room error
  • Improper treatment

These actions could quickly become life-threatening for a patient, and might have even recently ended the life of someone that you love. However, you have rights as a family member or dependent of someone who has been killed due to medical error or malpractice, and an attorney can help you understand what these are.
