CMC Accused of Wrongful Death, Failure to Diagnose

Posted By Patrick M. Rogan || 2-May-2010

The Times-Tribune reports that Community Medical Center (CMC) in Scranton and one of its emergency room doctors are facing accusations of wrongful death for failing to diagnose the life-threatening symptoms of a man who sought treatment at the hospital but was released rather than hospitalized for his injuries. Hours after his release, he died in a car accident after losing control of his vehicle.

Cases like this are tragic. Whether the courts will hold these particular defendants responsible depends on many factors. One thing is for sure, the quality of the legal representation each side chooses will significantly impact the outcome. A good Scranton personal injury lawyer can make all the difference in a Scranton wrongful death case.

Medical malpractice, failure to diagnose and wrongful death are heartbreaking realities in the healing profession. Losing a loved one at any time and for any reason is hard enough to bear, but losing a loved one and knowing that it could have been prevented adds to the pain and difficulty.
