Medical malpractice suit claims man's death was preventable

Everyone makes mistakes. While some mistakes may result in a longer route to work or a missed appointment, mistakes related to medical malpractice can cost a person in Massachusetts his or her life. For example, the family members of a deceased man who resided in a neighboring state claim that medical negligence on the part of several different people and companies connected to the treatment of their loved one resulted in his death.

The 56-year-old man died in 2013 after undergoing gall bladder surgery. The doctor who performed that surgery is named in the suit and is accused of failing to provide proper care. Just days after the surgery, the man reportedly visited the emergency room as a result of complications from the surgery. He was reportedly given an antibiotic and sent home. He died weeks later after sepsis reportedly caused his organs to shut down. 

Also named in the lawsuit is the man's nurse practitioner and her employer. The man's family members became suspicious of her after finding abnormally large quantities of narcotics in his home following his death. They claim that in addition to ignoring many of the patient's serious medical conditions, she prescribed him dangerously large quantities of pain medication. This nurse practitioner is also facing her own criminal problems after being accused of accepting kickbacks from drug companies for prescribing pain medication that could be dangerous.

Regardless of the outcome of the case, a family is left grieving their loved one. While a successfully presented case could result in an award of damages, it could also prevent similar instances of medical malpractice in the future. For those suffering from such negligence in Massachusetts, an initial consultation with an experienced attorney could be the first step toward justice.
