Los Angeles Wrongful Death Attorney

Taking Legal Action in the Event of a Wrongful Death

Wrongful deaths due to medical malpractice are an unfortunate reality of the medical profession. At Bostwick & Peterson LLP, we know that although no amount in financial compensation will ever take the place of the individual you lost to malpractice, receiving some form of monetary compensation not only aides in the grieving process but also lessens the financial impact of your loved one's passing. In the past we have won for our clients over $750 million in compensation for medical malpractice related accidents. Our solid team of dedicated legal professionals will fight on your behalf so you don't have to suffer any more hardships. Speak to a Los Angeles medical malpractice lawyer from our firm today.

What a Wrongful Death Lawyer in Los Angeles Can Do for You

Many medical malpractice cases involving the wrongful death of a patient usually stem from medical negligence on the part of a doctor, surgeon, or other medical professional. In a hospital environment, medical professionals work long hours without rest. This lack of rest can lead to impaired cognitive function, which can be incredibly dangerous especially if the individual in question is about to perform intensive surgery. Aside from surgical errors, negligent behavior and fatigue can also lead to life-threatening birth injuries, anesthesia error, and medication errors.

Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of a life-threatening disease, illness, or infection also constitutes a wrongful death. If your loved one passed because his or her doctor failed to recognize the signs of a fatal illness, you should hold that doctor liable for the pain and financial burden caused by losing your family member. If you relied on that family member for financial support, the compensation you receive should make up for this income loss. While families can receive justice for the death of their loved one through the criminal courts, it is in the civil arena where they can receive compensation for the incredible amount of emotional and financial damage they have had to suffer. Let us help you fight for the compensation you not only need, but also definitely deserve.
