What do I do if I want to be assured there was no medical malpractice in my wife's death?

Asked by user in Alabama.

My wife was diagnosed with COVID-19 and died in the hospital. I want to be sure she did not pass on unnecessarily.

Answered by Enjuris Editors:

I’m so sorry for your loss.

A number of lawsuits in a number of states have been filed based on COVID-19-related medical malpractice. Unfortunately, it’s impossible for me to know whether you might have a claim without knowing more details about your loss.

The best thing for you to do is to meet with a personal injury attorney in your area. The good news is that initial consultations are almost always free. The attorney will be able to discuss your specific situation and tell you whether you might have a case worth pursuing.

In the meantime, find out how to get the most out of your initial consultation here and learn more about COVID-19 injuries and lawsuits here.

I wish you the best of luck with your potential case.
