On average, 44,000-98,000 Americans die each year from medical errors (Institute of Medicine). Globally, the numbers are as follows (JAMA):
- 80,000 deaths per year resulting from infections while hospitalized

Weitz & Luxenberg has the expertise to handle wrongful death cases resulting from medical malpractice. We will get you the compensation you deserve.
When a loved one dies, many costs follow. If the bereaved are not properly compensated by life insurance, expenses like burial costs and medical bills can be a massive burden. The average funeral with all expenses included costs over $10,000 (AARP). Wrongful death as a result of medical malpractice entitles you to get compensation for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Earnings lost
- Burial and funeral expenses
- Medical expenses
- Any out of pocket expenses related to the incident
You can get relief in this difficult time by contacting our law firm as soon as possible.
The Burden of a Loved One’s Passing
John lost his wife after a botched surgery. John’s wife went in for an operation on her heart, but due to a negligent surgeon, an improper incision was made and her life was cut short. John underwent a long grieving process afterwards. Unfortunately, during this process, John suffered from economic struggles because of the time he needed off from work and because of the lack of his wife’s income, which he had relied on to help pay the mortgage. By the end of John’s grieving process, he had lost his home and his car.
Weitz & Luxenberg understands that in addition to the emotional burden of a loved one’s passing, there is also a significant financial burden. We will aid you in getting compensation for your wrongful death case.
