New York Wrongful Death Lawyers
When we place loved ones in the care of medical professionals, we never imagine doctors and surgeons causing more harm than good. However, not all health care professionals practice medicine with the diligence and thoughtfulness that we often expect. In the most extreme cases, the careless actions of doctors and surgeons may cause death to patients.
As many as 100,000 people die each year in medical facilities due to hospital negligence and medical mistakes. If one of your loved ones has been the victim of medical malpractice while under the care of a New York physician, the wrongful death attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP, can inform you of your legal rights and help you pursue justice in this difficult time.
Causes of Wrongful Death
In the event of a wrongful death, knowing what happened to your loved one while he or she was in a hospital’s care may be able to bring you some peace during this overwhelming time. Our lawyers can help families by investigating the numerous mistakes which can lead to death, including:
- Misdiagnosis of a patient
- Surgical mistakes
- Poor patient observation
- Failure to follow standard medical procedures
If you believe that your loved one was the victim of one or more of these mistakes, the knowledge of a legal professional could be a valuable asset to you and your family. An attorney can make you aware of your legal rights in such an event, as well as help you fight for justice.
