Medical malpractice news

When medical malpractice happens, it can have devastating health consequences and change your life forever.

In the news a while ago - A 49-year old woman who was supposed to undergo surgery, entered cardiac arrest after being given anesthesia. She remained in a vegetative state until she died several years later. Her family filed a malpractice lawsuit against the hospital, the surgeon, and the nurses who assisted in the operating room.

Recently, a court overturned a ruling rendered in favor of the estate of the woman. The court stated, "There was inadequate proof that the injury was one that bespoke negligence." "Although what happened was unfortunate, the death was listed as a foreseeable risk of anesthesia on the consent form she signed prior to surgery."

When medical malpractice leads to the death of a loved one, the surviving family may be able to move forward with a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible hospital and/or doctor and staff. Medical malpractice lawsuits are complex and require the skill of a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has been successful in medical malpractice cases.
