Medical doctors and hospitals are where we turn in our time of greatest need. We bring our sick parents and injured brothers, our hopeful grandparents and nervous fathers, our expectant mothers and coughing children . We are told that the first and most important rule for a doctor is “do no harm”. Yet, by many estimates, over 200,000 people a year die as a result of medical error in the United States.
When a wrongful death occurs as a result of a medical error, the family members of the deceased often feel as if they are not being told the truth. The medial providers who previously had been reassuring and communicative suddenly cease to explain what happened, and look to protect themselves from the wrongful death that occurred under their care.
The family members and loved ones are often told that it is “just something that happens”, or “there was nothing” the medical provider could do. This is rarely the full story.
