Fatalities Caused by Medical Malpractice

Our medical malpractice lawyer helps develop a strategy which may result in a fair settlement for the wrongful death of your loved one

When we trust a doctor, surgeon or other medical professional with the health of a loved one, we never expect it to cost our loved one's life. But sometimes negligence or substandard treatment, such as misdiagnosis, a prescription mistake or a surgical error can result in the wrongful death of a family member.

At The Bates Law Firm, we are determined to help family members recover compensation from negligent doctors and their insurers when fatal medical malpractice causes the death of your loved one in San Antonio or throughout south Texas. While we are always sensitive to the loss our clients face, we do not hesitate to aggressively pursue full and fair verdicts and settlements on your behalf.

Types of fatal medical negligence

With more than 25 years of experience, our medical malpractice attorney has dedicated his practice to helping victims recover compensation for their losses. Our firm develops a strategy which may result in a fair settlement for the loss of a loved one when negligence or deviation from the accepted standard of care by doctors, surgeons, pharmacists, nurses or other medical professionals leads to a wrongful death:

  • Fatal misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis
  • Fatal surgical mistakes
  • Fatal emergency room errors
  • Fatal anesthesia errors
  • Fatal prescription errors
  • Fatal birth injuries

Nursing home abuse and wrongful death

Elderly family members are particularly susceptible to serious or fatal injuries when nursing home abuse occurs. Even passive abuse by trusted caregivers may result in the wrongful death of a loved one. At The Bates Law Firm, our hardworking lawyer is dedicated to holding negligent nursing homes responsible for the injuries and fatalities they cause. If you have lost a loved one because of abuse or neglect, we provide highly compassionate, professional representation to help you obtain the maximum compensation possible.
