Autopsies Often Necessary to Show Malpractice

In his latest post to our firm's Virginia & North Carolina Medical Surgery Malpractice Attorneys Blog, my colleague Jim Lewis advises families members to request an autopsy when they suspect a loved one has lost his or her life due to a misdiagnosis, mistake, negligence or other instance of medical malpractice by a doctor, surgeon, nurse, pharmacist or other health care provider. Jim notes that evidence from a postmortem examination is often the only way to show malpractice that resulted in a wrongful death.
