Summary: (800) 606-1717 Michigan medical malpractice lawyer discusses the types of medical malpractice wrongful death cases. Top malpractice attorneys winning highest settlements - No Fee Promise!

Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers handle cases involving the wrongful deaths of patients for family members who have lost a loved one in a medical malpractice. These lawsuits are filed against the hospital facility doctors, nurses, or surgeons whose negligence in their care of the patient caused a premature and untimely death.

This type of lawsuit is brought under the Michigan Wrongful Death Statute. The suits seek compensation for the family members and aim to prevent such a tragedy from happening to another patient. Typically, the family will select a personal representative to bring the lawsuit for them. Other family members still participate in the case and work together to assist the attorney.

When the case settles, it is the judge who determines how much each family member will receive from the settlement. The judge tries to make sure that everyone receives a fair share. No settlement money can be distributed to anyone until a court order is entered by the judge specifying the payment to each family member.

Types of Medical Malpractice Wrongful Death Cases

Michigan wrongful death lawsuits for medical malpractice deaths arise from a number of different types of abuse and neglect. These include:

  • Misdiagnosed cancer (lung cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer)
  • Birth Injuries such as cerebral palsy and shoulder dystocia
  • Misread x-rays and pap smears
  • Emergency room error
  • Medication error
  • Surgical error
  • Anesthesia error
