Did You Lose A Loved One Due To Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice can cause severe health problems, and sometimes patients even die due to improper medical care. If your family lost a loved one, we understand that you are going through a period of significant pain and stress. While nothing can bring them back, medical providers can be held responsible if their negligence led to an early death.
At Curtis & Co., we have an in-house registered nurse and licensed practitioner on staff. Together, we will thoroughly evaluate your medical malpractice case and explore all options. Our goal is to establish a strong case that will help you find justice and recover the compensation your family needs for ongoing financial security.
Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?
After a loved one’s death, a select group of people can file a wrongful death claim. They include:
- A representative of the estate on behalf of the survivors
- A spouse
- Parents of minors
- Minors who lost their parents
Typically, the more distant the relationship, the more difficult it is to file a claim. Regardless of your relationship, we will work together to build the strongest possible case.
Why Should You File A Claim?
There are many reasons why you may decide to file a wrongful death claim. If a doctor has failed to diagnose a condition, misdiagnoses a condition or was careless during treatment, you might have a case. Together, we will thoroughly work through all of the facts.
You may be entitled to compensation, including funeral costs, medical costs, loss of inheritance, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, and loss of the deceased person’s income. Let us help you find some comfort in securing justice after your loss and ensuring financial protection.
