Can I sue the hosptal if my mother dies due to a misdiagnosis in the intensive care unit?

Yes, you can sue the hospital if a family member dies due to a misdiagnosis in the intensive care unit. This type of lawsuit is called a medical malpractice lawsuit.  The most commonly misdiagnosed conditions in the intensive care unit includes heart attack, pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, and infections. In Michigan, a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging the misdiagnosis of a patient in the intensive care unit, the patient or the patient’s family must prove that a proper and timely diagnosis would have resulted in a better medical outcome, and with this proper diagnosis the patient would have received appropriate treatment and avoided serious injury or death.
