Medical Malpractice – Should an Autopsy be performed?

Losing a family member, spouse or child is one of the most trying and difficult times a person can experience. Unfortunately, such losses were sometimes due to negligent medical care/treatment. If you suspect that malpractice was committed, or you are curious as to the exact cause of death, then an autopsy is of the utmost importance.

Autopsy Reports Can Determine Malpractice

An autopsy report can be used to help your attorney and medical experts determine the true cause of death and any contributing factors, such as doctor or nurse error. We have discovered through experience that while not all autopsy reports necessarily prove that malpractice was committed, such reports can provide peace of mind in knowing exactly why a loved one died.

If you have any suspicion that medical malpractice could have been a factor and contributed to the death of a loved one, you must order that an autopsy be performed. You should then contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney to guide you thru the legal process.
