The Eurestis were a close family and their mother meant everything to them. Though she was in her seventies and frail, she remained vibrant in her church and in her family’s lives. However, her doctor failed to treat a wound on her ankle appropriately and she needed to be hospitalized. After stabilizing her wound, the family was told that she needed to stay briefly in a nursing home. While her family would have preferred her to be home, they followed the doctor’s advice and placed her in a skilled nursing home. However, the nursing home failed to care for her wound properly and she passed away. One day, their mother was there arranging family gatherings and making sure everyone stayed in touch. The next day, she was gone — and with next to no warning.

Medical malpractice cases are often difficult because doctors and hospitals do not want to admit or are afraid to admit that they made a mistake. Tragically, however, those mistakes often lead to serious injuries or death and claims should often be pursued not just to obtain deserved compensation, but to make hospitals and nursing homes safer for the next person that arrives. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, please feel free to call for a free consultation.
