Your grief is immeasurable, and the way that your life has changed can’t be described. You expected that your loved one would be treated with reasonable care whether your loved one sought care at Norton’s Healthcare, Jewish Hospital, Baptist Hospital, University Hospital, or another facility. You never expected that your loved one would die as a result of a medical mistake.
What to Do if This Has Happened to You
If your loved one has died after being the victim of a medical mistake, you need to find out about your:
- Legal Rights. As the surviving family member, you may have the right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit, to collect on certain insurance policies, and to take possession of certain assets.
- Possible Recovery. Your recovery from a Kentucky wrongful death lawsuit may help you survive in the future by providing you with compensation for the medical expenses incurred by your loved one prior to death, funeral expenses, past and future lost income, out-of-pocket costs, and pain and suffering.
- Right to Get Help. You do not have to figure out what to do by yourself. Instead, you have the right to contact an experienced Kentucky wrongful death attorney for help.
It is too late to save your loved one’s life and to protect yourself from the grief that you are experiencing. However, you should not also have to bear the financial repercussions of a doctor’s or hospital’s mistake. The doctor or hospital who made the mistake should not be able to walk away from the death of your loved one without being held accountable.
