Wrongful Death from Medical Malpractice

At the Pacific Attorney Group we handle many types of cases that have devastating effects on individuals and their families.  We hope that we never become insensitive to the pain and suffering of those that come to us for help.  This is particularly true is cases that involve a wrongful death due to medical malpractice.  Much has been written and said about medical malpractice, but it probably all falls short of the trauma that occurs, when medical malpractice causes the death of someone you know and love.  An experienced and knowledgeable San Jose medical malpractice lawyer can work with you towards the successful outcome of any case involving wrongful death. 

A wrongful death can be caused by a variety of medical malpractices.  Various common causes are incorrect medicines being prescribed or the overuse of medications.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), death from prescription drugs was the second leading cause of unintentional deaths in the United States.  Improper surgery, errors in diagnosis, dental malpractice, mishandled births and bacterial infections can all bring about a wrongful death.  It is, however, sad to note that many wrongful death cases are not recognized for what they are and go unfiled.  This is where our firm stands ready to fight on your behalf.
