Lawsuit claims multiple warning signs missed in woman’s death

Most in Queens may agree that while modern healthcare has turned what once may have been considered life-threatening scenarios into very treatable outcomes, there may still be medical cases that may have no answer. However, for the family and friends of those patients who suffer sudden and seemingly inexplicable failures in their health, that may not be an easy answer to accept. If medical evidence seems to point to the possibility that fatal outcomes may have been prevented had early warning signs been recognized, then the desire to hold those who missed such signs accountable may be understandable.

In a recent medical malpractice lawsuit in Pennsylvania, the attorney for the plaintiff in the case cites such evidence when claiming that this client’s wife’s death was preventable. The woman died of septic shock three days after being induced into labor. Her husband’s attorney claims her death was caused by a urinary tract infection which eventually resulted in multiple organ failure. He points to her personal history of kidney and urinary tract infections, lab results showing bacteria in her urine prior to delivering, and her multiple complaints of pain in the days leading up to her death as all being signs her doctors should have picked up on prior to her sepsis setting in. Representatives from the hospital named in the lawsuit, however, contend that her death was due to a bizarre confluence of factors that were unique to her case.

The pain of losing someone suddenly may be made even more unbearable if it is believed such a loss could have been prevented. If such belief persists in the hearts and minds of those left behind, they may want to enlist the help of an attorney in holding those healthcare providers who failed to act appropriately responsible.
