The death of one spouse caused by the negligent act of another person can be the subject of a lawsuit for money damages brought by the administrator of the deceased person's estate. Some of these damages are easy to identify, such as lost potential earnings, medical expenses prior to death and funeral expenses.
Medical malpractice endangers many lives in Connecticut. Recent reports indicate that a dental practitioner had his license suspended following the death of his patient, an elderly woman. Autopsy reports done by the medical examiner at the hospital where the elderly woman died, indicated that she had died of cardio-pulmonary complications.
If you've ever been in a hospital, the best time of your stay is when your doctor walks into your room and tells you that you are being discharged. In most cases, this means that the condition that caused you to enter the hospital has been treated sufficiently to allow you to continue to manage any remaining symptoms or follow-up treatments at home or as an outpatient.
Time does not wait, and injuries rarely get better on their own. It is essential for a person dealing with a personal injury resulting from possible medical malpractice to seek legal help as quickly as possible.
