Psychiatrists sometimes fail to prevent suicide
Psychiatric negligence can have tragic consequences. People who are in pain reach out for help from a psychiatrist. They may put a great deal of trust in the psychiatrist. Unfortunately, the psychiatrist sometimes does more harm than good. The problem of suicide is more widespread than people might believe. Each year, about 36,000 die by suicide in the United States. There are about 900,875 suicide attempts every year in the country.
If your loved one died by suicide or attempted suicide, contact Skip Simpson for a free consultation. The Law Offices of Skip Simpson represents surviving family members whose loved ones died as a result of psychiatric malpractice, or negligence. We help families pursue compensation for their losses, which can range from a loss of income if the victim was the primary bread-winner to pain and suffering and other non-economic losses.
Psychiatric negligence may be rooted in the medical professional’s failure to notice or diagnose a dangerous condition, or failure to protect a patient from suicide. As with other doctors, psychiatrists are obligated to meet accepted standards of care.
