Lose a Loved One to Hospital negligence?
Wrongful Death Attorney in Peachtree City
Sadly, tens of thousands of Americans die each year due to preventable medical errors. Survivors of the decedent do have recourse to a wrongful death suit in which they can hold the doctor, medical staff, or hospital responsible for any negligence which led to the death of their loved one. If you lost someone due to medical personnel who violated the standard of care through their negligence, you and other survivors may be eligible to recover compensation through a wrongful death suit.
When you lose a loved one, you need a compassionate and knowledgeable Peachtree City medical malpractice attorney who can come alongside you to advocate for your rights. This is exactly what we do at Webb & Taylor, LLC: we have a pair of nurses on staff to assess medical malpractice claims and better serve our clients who were wronged by medical staff. Our firm has been so successful in fighting for our clients’ compensation that we have been listed in Super Lawyers® and have received an AV® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®.
What can I recover damages for?
In a wrongful death suit, the family of the decedent sues for damage that was caused to them by way of the loss of their loved one. A Peachtree City wrongful death attorney from our firm can help you assess exactly what you are entitled to recover compensation for in your case.
In general, wrongful death suits can recover damages for:
- Loss of financial support
- Costs of funeral expenses
- Loss of love and emotional support
- Loss of intimacy and companionship
- Compensation for the pain and suffering prior to death
- Financial costs of medical care
A successful wrongful death claim depends on several factors, including the following: how well you as a survivor can argue that your loved one died due to a medical error which was preventable, the error caused pain and suffering before the death occurred, and if your loved one had survived, they would have been able to sue the doctor or hospital for damages.
