Unattended Child Dies in Hospital


A 4-year-old child from Dallas died unattended on March 13 at a hospital in El Paso from injuries to the head.

The child was hospitalized for a serious head injury, and died later from his injuries while unattended at the hospital. This means that no physician was present at the time of the child’s death. Police are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the death, although no charges have been filed.

Whenever our loved ones go to the doctor we expect that they will be cared for correctly by the healthcare practitioners in whose care we place them. In the event that medical malpractice has occurred because a doctor neglected their duty or was careless in their actions and wrongful death or serious injury resulted, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to receive compensation for the damages.
