Wrongful Death Cases – We Fight. We Win.

Our award-winning Michigan lawyers have helped clients across the country who have suffered from medical mistakes. In 2015, we secured $21 million for the family of a woman who went to the hospital complaining of jaw pain, and suffered through a completely unnecessary brain surgery that led to her death.

Doctors had to be sued for the truth to come out:

They had operated on the wrong patient.

Our medical malpractice verdicts have set records in the state of Michigan and throughout the United States. We know that money will never bring your loved one back, but it can lessen the financial burden for grieving families while providing the closure they need to heal. More than that, these judgments can show hospitals and doctors that medical errors will not be tolerated.

We have secured more than 165 million-dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients, and we will fight for you.

Wrongful death occurs when someone loses their life due to the negligence or misconduct of another person. These tragedies can also be the result of a faulty product, such as an automobile. In the case of medical malpractice, it can be through the carelessness of a doctor, nurse, hospital, anesthesiologist, or other medical professionals. Unfortunately, it happens all too often.

Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., according to a 2016 paper published by Johns Hopkins University researchers. There is no excuse for this, and the lawyers at Fieger Law are committed to seeking justice for wrongful death victims.

We have seen it more times than we’d like to say: Patients who seek medical help only to become victims of someone’s irreversible wrongdoing. It shouldn’t have happened to you, and it shouldn’t happen again.
