Being faced with an urgent medical situation is often stressful and worrisome for all involved. Parents or other family members who may accompany a sick or injured loved one to the hospital typically do so with the greatest of hope that all will be well once medical professionals address the issue and take steps to offer appropriate treatment. What is a New Jersey family to do, however, when an emergency room error results in a loved one's death?
The grief associated with suffering the untimely death of an immediate family member is barely fathomable even to those who have lived through it. When a death has been directly caused by negligence on the part of medical staff in an emergency room, a family's sorrow is often compounded by anger and an intense desire to seek justice on behalf of their deceased loved one. The law allows an immediate relative to file a wrongful death claim in a civil court in order to seek accountability against those deemed responsible for the tragedy.
Attorney Alan D. Bell offers free consultations to anyone with questions or concerns regarding the legal process involved in pursuing a claim on behalf of a deceased family member. When those on duty in an emergency room have failed to provide adequate care, causing an already stressful situation to become tragic, it is only right that those directly affected receive restitution for their losses. With an experienced attorney dedicated to helping those who have suffered in traumatic emergency room situations, families can protect their rights and maximize the compensation available for the damages they have suffered.
