My daughter was in the hospital for an asthma attack she then needed a blood transfusion when she received the blood transfusion she went into hematologic shock which resulted in her death the doctor isn't denying that a mistake happened he's just blaming it on the lab
Condolences. Absolutely as blood has to be matched and cross-matched to insure that tragedies as you describe do not occur.
Get your daughter's medical records and meet with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. It sounds like this is a case that can be pursued. One caveat, that is unfortunate. With the MICRA medical malpractice limit on general damages, passed in 1977 and unchanged in 2016, general damages are limited to $250,000.00. Since insurance companies do not fear a large hit at trial, they take many of these cases to trial. And statistically, jurors return defense verdicts in 70 to 80% of medical negligence cases.
So sorry for your loss. Yes, you do have a case. We're not allowed to offer our services to prospective clients here. So, you have to make a direct contact with the attorneys.
These cases are done on a contingency basis and consultations are free.
I agree with the other attorneys that there may be a case, but you need to find a good attorney and contact them yourself.
I am very sorry to hear about what happened. That's a terrible tragedy. You should immediately consult with some medical malpractice attorneys about pursuing this matter. The statute of limitations for medical malpractice is very short, so you need to act quickly. Best of luck.
Oh, no. I was reading this post and hoping it was something minor, but this is terrible. Yes, you need a lawyer and you can probably sue if this was recent enough.
You need to get a lawyer immediately. I do med mal and can tell you that it's challenging, but the key for you is you only have a year to get started and file the case.
So sorry to hear about this. All the best.
