Causes of Medical Malpractice Resulting in Death
There can be varied reasons for a medical procedure causing the death of an individual, but when it is due to some form of negligence, steps must be taken to hold those responsible accountable for their actions. Certain drugs when used incorrectly, or the wrong drug, can result in severe reactions that result in death. Surgeries that leave instruments or other operating paraphernalia in the body have caused fatalities, as have misdiagnosis, lack of proper hygiene resulting in fatal infections and improper labeling of charts resulting in incorrect treatment.
Losing a loved one is a tragic event that cannot be made whole by monetary compensation. However, financial circumstances such as medical bills, daily living expenses and the loss of support from the deceased create a financial burden for the remaining family members.
