Wrongful Death and Medical MalpracticeLosing a loved one is a heartbreaking experience for any family. When that loss is caused by medical malpractice, the trust you placed in medical professionals to care for your loved one feels betrayed. The surviving family deserves answers and compensation for their loss.

A wrongful death claim can be pursued against a medical facility and medical professionals, such as nurses, doctors, surgeons and anesthesiologists who may have been responsible for the death of your loved one. A wrongful death case helps to protect the surviving family members by providing compensation for your economic and non-economic losses.

Although many people think wrongful death cases most often involve the elderly, our experienced attorneys at Kline & Specter, PC, know that no one is immune from these tragic circumstances. We have successfully represented the families of infants, children, and adults who died because of errors made by medical professionals.

Some of our most notable verdicts and settlements include a $33.1 million verdict for the loss of a wife and mother due to a misdiagnosis of breast cancer, a $25 million verdict for the death of a woman in a botched fertility procedure, and a $25 million settlement for death caused by the failure to diagnose a cardiac problem after open heart surgery.

When selecting a wrongful death attorney for your case, it is important to choose an attorney who is not only an experienced litigator but also one with a strong medical background who can readily understand the intricacies of medical malpractice cases.

At Kline & Specter, our team of attorneys includes five accomplished doctors with decades of experience – that’s the most full-time doctor/lawyers of any law firm in America.
