Wrongful Death due to Medical Negligence

Wrongful Death Due to Medical Negligence There are almost 100,000 wrongful deaths due to medical malpractice in the United States every year. Those deaths can be caused by a variety of preventable medical errors such as giving the wrong medicine, surgical errors, preventable suicide by a psychiatric inpatient or failure to properly diagnose and treat a medical condition. Usually, the family has a feeling that their loved one's death could have been prevented, but they don't know where to turn. There are so many unanswered questions.

We start by talking to the family and listening to their concerns. The next step is to get copies of the decedent's medical records and the autopsy report, if there is one. We then consult with our attorney-physician and with other medical specialists to determine whether the death was caused by medical negligence.

We know that we cannot replace the loss felt by the family of one who has died due to negligent medical care. We can, however, answer their questions and guide them through the process of pursuing a claim for compensation for that loss.

Client Reviews
My 15-year-old son suffered a life-altering closed head injury that left him disabled for life when he was injured in a truck accident. I went to Mike Miller for help. Mike and the law firm were the greatest people I have ever been around. Everything they did was excellent, above and beyond the call of duty. They were able to recover enough to let me leave my job and devote full time care for my son. To this day, they are more than happy to talk with me and take care of anything that comes up. J.M.
Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for. C.L.
A patient with a stroke was not transferred to a hospital capable of treating her. The client said, "We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad's integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great." C.M.
Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman's comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life. T.R.
