Losing a loved one is the greatest pain a human being can feel. Personal injury lawyer at The Weinberger Law Firm is here to help protect the futures of those who have suffered.

Losing a loved one is the greatest pain a human being can feel. That pain can be exacerbated if your loss is the result of an accident or tragic error, and while no amount of compensation can make up for that loss, it is comforting to know that the law provides you with the right to seek compensation for a premature death or serious injury. Surviving family members are often left trying to make up for lost income and dealing with expensive medical bills and/or funeral costs.

Before you proceed with hiring a personal injury lawyer to help with litigation, it will help you to understand the difference between medical malpractice and wrongful death.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death lawsuit seeks to award compensation to the surviving family, heirs or dependents of a person who died resulting from the negligence or wrongful act of another.

  • An individual is killed in a vehicular accident by a drunk/reckless driver
  • A person dies after an assault in a bar
  • A person is killed when a product they were using failed
  • A person dies after eating food that was spoiled / tainted

The above all represent examples of situations in which bringing a wrongful death suit is feasible. The attorneys at this firm have experience handling all types of wrongful death cases, and if you think the death of your loved one resulted from the negligence or wrongful act of another, please give us a call today for a free consultation.

Medical Malpractice

A Medical Malpractice incident must involve the performance of medical care services. The key difference between medical malpractice and wrongful death is that medical malpractice need not result in the death of the individual. Medical care services can be performed by a variety of individuals that include doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, health care facilities and pharmaceutical companies.

  • Improper medication or dosage
  • Nursing home patient neglected and / or mistreated
  • Premature hospital discharge
  • Surgical errors
  • Unnecessary surgery or surgery performed at wrong-site
  • Ignoring or misreading laboratory results

If you or a loved one have experienced a tragic incident and believe someone else to be responsible, please give us a call today for a free consultation. Don’t worry if you are confused about the difference between medical malpractice and wrongful death, or even if you’re not sure your situation represents either, thats what we are here for!
