Woman files wrongful death lawsuit against California hospital

Most people find that their relationships with their loved ones are among the most important things in their lives. When such a relationship is cut short by the negligence of a medical professional, it is devastating. The surviving family is then deprived of the companionship and support of their irreplaceable loved one. In a recent news story, one California woman is facing this experience. She has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a hospital that she alleges caused the wrongful death of her husband. 

The man had gone into a medical center for a partial nephrectomy, the medical term for kidney removal surgery. After the surgery, the man developed a saddle embolus, or blood clot, that the woman claims came from the negligence of the medical staff. Due to the saddle embolus, he died from a bilateral pulmonary embolism three days later. 

The woman alleges that as a result of medical malpractice, she has been deprived of the service, comfort, protection, care and society of her husband. She is seeking damages plus court costs, interest, and other just and proper relief. She feels that the medical center become responsible when they failed to exercise the standard of care that led to the death of her husband. 

The wrongful death lawsuit may bring some deserved relief to the suffering woman, who sadly must go on without her husband. Many other individuals and families in California may also become the victims of medical negligence. Those families may choose to enlist the services of a personal injury attorney for guidance in filing a lawsuit and presenting the facts of their case.
