Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

My husband died during surgery. Prior to surgery, the surgeon told us that death was a risk of the surgery. Does that mean that I shouldn’t contact a Kansas City medical malpractice lawyer now?

We are sincerely sorry to hear of your husband’s passing. Death is, unfortunately, a risk with some surgeries, and it is a risk that even the best and most vigilant surgeons cannot prevent. However, that does not necessarily mean that your husband’s death was not caused by medical malpractice.


In order to determine if your husband’s death was the result of an unavoidable complication or of a Kansas City surgery error, it is important to contact an experienced Kansas City medical malpractice attorney who can investigate what happened to your husband and help you understand your legal rights.

If your husband died because the surgeon, a member of the surgical team, or the hospital did not act with reasonable care, then you may have the right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit and recover damages. Damages may include compensation for your husband’s medical bills, your husband’s funeral expenses, your family’s out-of-pocket cost, your husband’s past and future lost income, your husband’s pain and your family’s suffering.


You do not want to live the rest of your life wondering, “What if?” What if it was a mistake that took your husband’s life? What if you could have helped protect your family’s financial future? What if you could have prevented the surgeon, surgical team, or hospital from inflicting this pain on another family?


To find out the answers to these questions, please contact a Kansas City wrongful death lawyer today at (816) 471- 5111 or (888) 348-2616 and read our FREE book: The Truth About Medical Malpractice Claims.
