Medical malpractice lawsuit in full swing after wrongful death

Florida residents, particularly those with heart conditions, may be interested in an ongoing malpractice lawsuit filed by the family of a Minnesota man against his physicians for his death in 2006. The family is seeking $10,000 for expenses and $50,000 compensation for the deceased man's next of kin.

The man was initially brought into the emergency room with hives and low blood pressure. His prior medical history involved taking medication for an accelerated heart rate and high blood pressure. The man was released after testing, but he returned that night and was unable to be resuscitated. The man subsequently died from underlying coronary disease. The family is suing the hospital for medical negligence

Attorneys for the plaintiffs argue that the proper procedures were not carried out and the man's medical history was not taken into account. Medical professionals testified that an EKG test involving electrodes placed on the patient's heart to monitor its activity was not performed and could have prevented his death. The victim's doctors protested the evidence, stating that there was insufficient information on the man's symptoms and prior heart problems. The wrongful death trial is ongoing, with more doctors being brought in for consultation.

Medical malpractice is not an uncommon occurrence for patients with heart conditions. Unless a full diagnosis is made on the rate and intensity of a patient's heartbeat, misdiagnosis and fatal medical errors can occur and affect the lives of both the patient and their loved ones. An experienced attorney may be capable of working with you to form a case against your physicians and provide you with compensation for your losses. Legal representatives could be able to consult with medical professionals for sufficient evidence to prove that proper procedures weren't carried out to prevent wrongful death or personal injury.
