Wrongful Death Claims Resulting From Medical Malpractice

Few things are more devastating for a family than losing a loved one at the hands of people who were responsible for treating and caring for the family member.

If you have recently lost a loved one and suspect that medical malpractice was involved, it is important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible once you are ready to explore your options. Civil actions have strict statutes of limitations that can make it difficult — if not impossible — to pursue compensation or otherwise hold negligent doctors, nurses or nursing homes responsible for their actions.

At Phillips, Phillips & Smith-Delach, P.C., our attorneys have nearly 100 years of combined experience in the fields of personal injury and medical malpractice in Pennsylvania. We have represented families grieving the loss of family members and unsure of what their legal options are. Just as importantly, we take a compassionate approach with our clients and an aggressive approach with hospital administration and insurance companies, ensuring that our clients' experience working with a lawyer is a positive one while we pursue compensation for their losses.

Experience To Help You Navigate The Legal Process

While compensation cannot bring your loved one back, it can protect your family's long-term financial outlook.

If your loved one suffered fatal injuries as a result of surgical error, postoperative negligence, or misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose, you may be able to collect compensation for:

  • Your loved one's medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of income and earning capacity
  • Loss of companionship

As one of Southwest Pennsylvania's most established personal injury and medical malpractice firms, we have access to medical experts whose testimony can strengthen a case by showing how physician or hospital malpractice contributed to someone's untimely death. We make every resource available to our clients to ensure that their cases have the greatest chance of success without placing an undue burden on their lives.
