Medical malpractice suit leads to $9M award

The family of a woman who died following an urgent care center visit in another state was recently awarded $9 million. The incident that led to the woman's death happened back in 2014. In the same way, if anyone in Texas loses a loved one due to medical malpractice, he or she has the right to seek justice through the civil court system.

In the out-of-state case, the woman who died due to malpractice passed away following several visits to the urgent care center. The attorney for the family asserted that the woman was in critical condition and thus should have been taken to the hospital via an ambulance. Instead, however, the urgent care staff sent the woman home with nothing more than an inhaler.

The following day, the woman passed away. Her lungs apparently had blood clots in them. The $9 million that the verdict in the malpractice case awarded the family is the biggest in such a case in the county where the lawsuit was filed.

Medical providers in Texas have a duty to provide care that meets a minimal professional standard when diagnosing and treating patients. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, and in some situations, it leads to serious harm or even death. Fortunately, if medical staff are negligent in their practice of medicine and end up costing someone his or her life, that person's loved ones have the right to file a lawsuit against the staff, seeking the reimbursement of damages. A claim that is pursued successfully may yield damages that might help to address funeral costs and other losses related to the documented medical malpractice incident.
