Hospital Negligence Claimed After Fall Allegedly Causes Death
On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Hospital Negligence lawyers in Houston Texas on Monday, September 21, 2015.
When a loved one experiences health problems with symptoms that are unusual for that person, the obvious action would naturally be to get a medical evaluation. Doctors nationwide, including in Texas, are perceived to be professional people who have had years of training to provide care at an acceptable standard. Unfortunately, physician and hospital negligence have caused the deaths of many patients.
One such case came to light when a woman in another state recently filed a lawsuit related to the 2013 death of her husband while he was in the care of a hospital. The complaint states that the plaintiff’s husband experienced vomiting and headaches and went to the emergency department of an area hospital. On the day following his admittance to the hospital, he allegedly had a fall.
The plaintiff alleges that her husband’s fall incident was not investigated by the hospital, nor did he receive any form of treatment. Court documents show that he was subsequently transferred to another medical center. The man died later, and it was apparently determined that a subarachnoid hemorrhage caused his death. The plaintiff alleges negligence on the part of the hospital and the treating physician in their failure to investigate the fall incident as well as their failure to perform tests to determine the level of damage caused by the fall.
This widow chose to hold the hospital and the doctor responsible for their alleged negligence, and she is claiming wrongful death in the civil lawsuit she filed. Texas residents who have reason to believe that their loved ones died as the result of hospital negligence retain the right to pursue compensation by filing medical malpractice lawsuits in a civil court. Our medical injury lawyers in Houston, TX are here to help. Recovery of medical costs and end-of-life expenses along with other documented financial losses may be sought.
