What Types Of Cases May Warrant A Wrongful Death Claim?

If your loved one was involved in an accident and died as a result, then you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death claims are commonly pursued in personal injury cases, including:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Construction accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Premises liability cases
  • Pedestrian knockdowns
  • Recreational vehicle accidents
  • Products liability
  • Defective product cases

If you lost a loved one and you believe it was due to negligence, then speaking with an experienced attorney is advised. At the Kocian Law Group, we can help evaluate your claim and determine who or what is at fault and what you may be able to recover for your devastating loss.

Wrongful Death And Medical Malpractice

Preserving life remains one of the primary functions of the medical profession. Doctors should do all they can to ensure that a person can live. However, sometimes malpractice leads to the death of a loved one. If your loved one died due to an avoidable error, call Kocian Law Group to seek justice.

That a medical professional would make such a serious mistake seems unthinkable, but it can happen in several ways.

  • Misdiagnosis is a large contributor to wrongful death. Often, if a person's condition was diagnosed in time, he or she could have been saved.
  • Medication errors and mistakes can also lead to death. If you are given the wrong medication or the wrong dosage, your body may not be able to handle it. Some medications react badly when used in tandem, so failure to note a patient's medical history or current medications can also cause serious harm.
  • Surgical errors can be especially deadly. During surgery, a person is unconscious and unable to look out for his or her own interests. Any time medical professionals must cut into the body, the risk of infection, of damaging vital arteries or puncturing organs, is present.

Medical science is not perfect; sometimes it is hard to say that a doctor's actions directly contributed to the death of your loved one, but an experienced attorney can help you determine if this is the case.
