We are sorry to hear about the loss of your spouse. We understand that this can be a very difficult time for you and we want to answer both of your questions. Let’s consider your second question first. In our opinion, you should contact a Lexington wrongful death lawyer.
Here’s why. The information that you provided is not enough for us to tell you whether you have a wrongful death case. By contacting an experienced Lexington wrongful death attorney, you will have the opportunity to share the specific facts about what happened to your spouse and learn about whether you have a viable wrongful death case.
Generally, you may have a wrongful death case if your loved one was negligently, or intentionally, given the wrong medication and if that error caused your loved one’s death. For example, you may have a case if your spouse was given medication meant for someone else or if he was given the wrong dose of medication and if that mistake was the reason your loved one died. In other words, your spouse’s death would not have occurred when it did if it had not been for the medication error.
