Dealing with the loss of a loved one is always difficult, but when someone has died because of a negligent medical case it can be an incredibly traumatic and upsetting time. A death happen due to mistakes in surgery or treatment as well as the patient’s condition not being diagnosed early enough or being misdiagnosed by the medical professionals in charge. There are many tragic instances where there is no one to blame when someone has died, but if the loss of your loved one could have been prevented then you may be entitled to compensation. Hennah Haywood Law may be able to help if you are either the dependant or the spouse of someone who has died through medical negligence. In addition, the executors can bring a claim on behalf of the deceased’s estate for injury or losses incurred by the deceased prior to their death and for any expenses arising from this.
Sometimes when deaths occur in unclear circumstances, an inquest may be held to establish the facts and the causes of death. You can instruct a solicitor to represent you at said inquests to ensure you are guided through the process and proceedings.
