It can also help you obtain the compensation you need to afford medical expenses, funeral costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other general and punitive damages. A successful wrongful death suit will require you and your Austin wrongful death attorney to prove liability in order to seek compensation.
Hospice care (also known as palliative care, when begun at diagnosis) is for terminally ill people who have stopped life-saving treatment. It is intended to keep recipients comfortable and cared for during their final days. However, without proper caution, training, and attention, caregivers can make major mistakes and do great harm to terminally ill patients. Patients can contract serious infections, experience additional pain and suffering, and even die sooner than necessary when hospice care is administered inappropriately.
