MyInjuryAttorney presents a free eBook on how to figure out if a doctor caused a family member's death. This guide is for all the grieving family members and friends that don't know where to turn after losing a loved one to an overdose.
When death was preventable - like an overdose is - it's natural to wonder what could have stopped it. Family members may blame their loved one for taking the medications, or they may even blame themselves for allowing it to happen.
What few people realize is that the cause of an opioid death sometimes happens years before the overdose. Often, this tragic path starts with a negligent doctor. When physicians inappropriately prescribe powerful opioid painkillers, they can trigger an addiction that changes the patient's life forever.
For many families, one of the biggest obstacles to finding closure is the sense of blame. My hope is that this content will help answer some of your questions about blame after an overdose and about your family's legal rights. Given that we are in the midst of an opioid crisis this content is worth a read.
