PA Medical Malpractice Lawyer: You’ve just lost a loved one who was at a hospital, or undergoing medical treatment. You’re feeling frustrated, scared and alone. The death may have occurred suddenly, or unexpectedly, or maybe your loved one complained to you that the treatment they were receiving wasn’t helping and maybe even making them worse off. Maybe they told you or you observed that the doctors and/or hospital staff wasn’t giving them the attention or care they needed. Now you’re wondering if your loved one has fallen victim to medical malpractice.
You may be wondering how this happened; how is this possible? That a trained medical professional who spent years in medical school has made such a mistake or been negligent with their care of your loved one. A Medical Malpractice lawyer will tell you that this happens more than you might think. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), medical negligence is responsible for more deaths in the United States annually than even car accidents. And you probably don’t think twice about how common car accidents are.
Nothing can bring your loved one back. But their passing has left a void in your life, emotionally and maybe even financially. Maybe your loved one was earning income, or even doing chores around your household that you now have to hire someone to do. Maybe the passing of your loved one has affected your ability to be productive with your own work, or put a strain on your relationships with other family members. Maybe your emotional well-being itself has been indefinitely affected. Things such as this can be considered “economic and non-economic losses” in a court of law, and you could get compensated and at the very least, relieved of the financial burden of your loved one’s loss.
We know that no amount of money can bring your loved one back. But we also know that the loss of a loved one can put a lot of financial pressure on a person. And on top of that, from a moral standpoint, the people whose mistakes and/or negligence that caused the death of your loved one, need to be held accountable. If they are not held accountable, they may do the same thing to someone else in the future. A Medical Malpractice Lawyer can help you with your case.
