Lawsuit Alleges Preventable Medical Mistakes Killed California Man

California news reports that a woman has filed a medical malpractice/wrongful death lawsuit against the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) regents, along with UCLA medical staff, and a UCLA surgeon.

According to legal documents, the woman’s husband died following routine hiatal hernia surgery repair. Preventable medical malpractice mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Preventable medical errors include a wide variety of mistakes including prescription errors, anesthesia errors and, as is asserted in this instance, surgical errors. When a preventable medical mistake harms a patient, it may be possible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit and hold the responsible party liable.

Here, the widow asserted has asserted that the team operating on her husband were not qualified to perform the procedure and that the procedure was not performed correctly. She is seeking wrongful death damages pursuant to California law.
