Losing a loved one to someone else’s negligence is a tragedy the law allows you to address via a wrongful death case. While seeking compensation cannot return your lost loved one to you, it can help you navigate the difficult path forward. If the party responsible for your loss ends up being an entity, such as a hospital, the same applies, and you are well-advised to work closely with an experienced wrongful death attorney.

Your Wrongful Death Case

If your loved one died due to a hospital’s negligent policies, procedures, protocols, or anything else related to negligence, you might have a wrongful death case against the hospital itself. Consider the following:

  • If the hospital implements policies that failed to protect your loved one
  • If the hospital fails to keep the facility up to reasonable standards regarding sanitation, and your loved one was harmed as a result
  • If negligence on the part of one of the hospital’s employees leaves your loved one harmed (doctors often aren’t employees of the hospitals they work in)
  • If the hospital keeps an incompetent doctor on staff, and your loved one is harmed by him or her

The case becomes a wrongful death claim if your loved one ultimately succumbs to the injuries he or she sustains.
