Unnoticed Internal Bleeding Leads To Hospital Malpractice Lawsuit
On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Texas Hospital Negligence Law Firm on Monday, June 20, 2016.
When Texas residents have loved ones admitted to medical facilities, they have the right to expect those people to receive care of an acceptable standard. Failure by facilities or their medical personnel to provide proper care may lead to hospital malpractice lawsuits, and people involved in these cases will need a lawyer focusing on medical errors in Houston to receive proper legal support. A medical center and several affiliates are facing such a lawsuit in another state.
According to the court documents, the administrator of the estate of a deceased woman alleges negligent post-operative care led to her untimely death. The plaintiff asserts that the woman was admitted to the facility in July 2014 for a cardiac procedure of catheterization. However, complications arose that caused internal bleeding. It is alleged that it caused a rapid deterioration in her general condition.
The patient died within five days of her admittance to the facility. Further allegations say the defendants failed to do a proper evaluation of the patient’s health following the surgical procedure. For this reason, the plaintiff contends, the internal bleeding went unnoticed and untreated, leading to the patient’s death.
Along with court costs, over $50,000 is sought in the recovery of damages sustained. When a Texas family believes that the death of a loved one was caused by negligent care at a medical facility, a consultation with an experienced Houston law firm specializing in medical errors may be advisable. A lawyer can assess and investigate the allegations to determine the viability of a hospital malpractice lawsuit. If it is decided to go ahead and file a claim in a civil court, an attorney can navigate it on behalf of the family.
