Legal claims may be warranted after hospital death

The loss of a loved one under any circumstances can be difficult for surviving family. However, when a death occurs due to the mistakes or negligence of medical professionals, individuals may feel particularly distraught over the situation. Unfortunately, this type of predicament could affect anyone, as medical malpractice is, unfortunately, not altogether uncommon. 

New Jersey residents may be interested in a legal case that is currently underway in another state. According to reports, a woman has filed a claim against a hospital, university health system, one doctor and another entity due to her mother's death. Apparently, the mother had been admitted to the hospital after she complained of chest pains and shortness of breath. However, the daughter believes that the mother was not properly treated.

The woman claims that the defendants did not properly diagnose her mother's condition, and as a result, they did not provide proper medical care. As a result, the woman's mother died days after a failed heart procedure. The daughter is currently hoping that a successful lawsuit will result in her obtaining compensation for the damages stemming from her loss.

As this case shows, taking legal action may be necessary if medical mistakes lead to the death of a loved one. Many surviving family members may feel such a loss in a significant way, and the alterations their lives go through after such an event can cause considerable hardship. If New Jersey residents have suffered due to the loss of a loved one as a result of medical malpractice, they may wish to consider filing legal claims of their own.
