Wrongful Death Medical Malpractice

One of the most devastating results of a doctor, nurse, or medical facility's negligence is death. Sometimes this negligence can be a failure to diagnose a serious condition or failure to properly treat a condition once it has been diagnosed. If an individual passes away as a result of medical malpractice, his or her family and/or estate are entitled to bring suit both on behalf of the decedent and in some cases, on behalf of the spouse who lost a loved one. Damages in those cases involve:

  • Pain and suffering of the person before he/she passes away

  • Loss of income/earning capacity

  • Loss of enjoyment of life

  • For spouses, loss of consortium (companionship)

Often wrongful death cases require an economic expert to render a report on what an individual's earning capacity would have been and what the value of the companionship was.
