Wrongful Death by Medical Negligence – Columbus, OH

Seeking Justice When Medical Negligence Causes a Wrongful Death


Wrongful death by medical malpractice occurs when a patient has died due to the negligence of a healthcare provider such as a physician, anesthesiologist, surgeon, nurse or hospital. These cases often required the expertise of a wrongful death attorney who can understand the complexities of the legal matters as well as the medical implications that have resulted from malpractice.


Medical malpractice often involves cases including:


·        Misdiagnosis

·        Failure to Diagnose

·        Mental Anguish
