Doctors Will Not Face Wrongful Death Charges in Michael Jackson Case
Officials investigating circumstances surrounding Michael Jackson’s death have decided not to pursue charges against seven physicians who treated him before his death. There was a referral of the case of one doctor under investigation for prescribing medication to a Jackson alias to the California Medical Board. While there won’t be any filing of criminal charges against the doctors, their legal troubles may not be over. The Jackson estate can still pursue wrongful death claims against them for a variety of different circumstances that may have led to the entertainer’s death.
The doctors’ practices of prescribing a wide range of pharmaceuticals and other possible lapses of professional ethics could embroil them in wrongful death litigation for the next several years. People outside the legal community easily misunderstand the intricacies and laws of wrongful death cases, which is why many turn to experienced Orlando wrongful death attorneys such as James O. Cunningham.
