Given that medical mistake lawsuit payouts averaged $679,000 in 2022, Justice Guardians is currently advising the family members of malpractice-related death victims to contact its team of attorneys.
In the state of Pennsylvania, the personal representative of the victim’s estate must be the one to file the wrongful death lawsuit, unless a period of six months has elapsed without a claim being made. At this point, any one of the decedent's beneficiaries, including a parent, may launch a civil suit that seeks to recover emotional damages and recuperate the cost of burial expenses, medical bills, and lost wages.
Due to this technicality, the firm explains that it is more time-critical for the parents of medical malpractice victims to file civil suits against the medical professionals or healthcare providers who caused the death of their child.
In building the case, Justice Guardians’ attorneys will address the principles that must be established for a wrongful death claim to be settled in favor of the plaintiff. These include showing that there was a duty of care towards the patient that was breached and that this breach lead to or failed to prevent their death.
Moreover, Pennsylvania law mandates that the plaintiff file a certificate of merit that has been signed by a licensed medical professional and that states that inadequate care has lead to the death of the client's child. If a settlement cannot be agreed upon through a pre-case demand letter, the firm will file a lawsuit in court.
A spokesperson for the firm said, “The process of pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit after you have lost someone you love is emotional, making it hard to understand what to do. Our consultation will give you the answers you need to make the best decision for yourself and those you love.”
