When a person is hurt and needs surgery to repair a condition, they’re expecting the procedure to increase their physical health or address the condition. When going in from the surgery, they put their trust in trained medical professionals and facilities. Tragically, instead of fixing the problem and getting them back on the road to good health, mistakes made by the medical team can be fatal.

From failing to identify pulmonary embolisms to errors made with anesthesia and in the emergency room, medical negligence that resulted in loss of life are tragic events that leave families devastated. A void is left in their life that can never be fully repaired, and the emotional loss is often compounded by the financial loss. Families may lose the person who was primarily responsible for providing their income, leaving them struggling to cover their expenses. A mother may also face having to raise her children on her own without the support of her husband.
