Father's death blamed on medical malpractice

In Kentucky and across the country, more stringent guidelines and regulations in the field of health care have made medical procedures safer than ever before. However, mistakes and errors will always happen any time there is a human element in the equation. Although not widely publicized, medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

Recently, a man in another state filed a lawsuit against his local health care provider after his father died while in their care. The lawsuit says that the plaintiff's father was diagnosed with low blood pressure and was treated by the defendant. According to the lawsuit, the father was found unconscious on his front lawn and died a day after being discharged from the defendant's care.

The suit alleges that the plaintiff's father had symptoms of sepsis and acute alcohol withdrawal, which are life-threatening conditions. The plaintiff seeks to hold the defendant responsible and claims that the defendant wrongfully discharged his father instead of admitting him to the hospital for observation. The plaintiff seeks punitive and compensatory damages, as well as all other just relief.

Thousands of patients place their lives in the hands of surgeons, physicians and nurses each day in the state of Kentucky and across the country. When negligence by health care providers results in injury or the death of a loved one, legal action can be taken. A successful medical malpractice lawsuit can result in a substantial monetary award to help victims and families through this daunting and traumatic experience.
