Do I have any legal rights if my family member died during surgery?

When a patient dies from unexpected death during a surgical procedure, the family whose relative died may have legal rights depending on the cause of death. Family members should investigate whether the death was the result of a surgery mistake or anesthesia errors, or whether it was from a complication that arose during the surgery that was not the result of a medical mistake.  Both of these will help a family obtain closure after the loss of a loved one and determine whether or not they have basis to file a lawsuit against the negligent hospital, surgeon, or anesthesiologist.

At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our experienced medical malpractice legal team will review the entire surgery report and then discuss the treatment with a board-certified surgeon to determine whether the victims’ condition was properly treated and whether the patient suffered an injury due to medical malpractice.  If there was medical mistake by a surgeon or physician that caused the death, we then pursue a medical malpractice case seeking damages under the Michigan Wrongful Death Statute.
