Malpractice is generally seen as medical malpractice, in which a physician has been negligent in his/her treatment of a patient, resulting in injury, damage, or loss (including death). It can be, however, the result of unethical or improper conduct by a professional, causing damages. Such cases invlove tedious overview of records, understanding of terminology and the coordination of expert testimony, with which Ms. Mack has abundant experience. She understands the trauma negligent professional services (medical or otherwise) can cause, and aggressively advocates for her clients in such matters.

“Wrongful death” as a legal term indicates a death that has been caused through the fault of another person or entity (e.g. deaths caused by: drunk driving, a defective or dangerous product, an unsound structure or building, or failing to diagnose a fatal disease). Under the law, these may be considered “wrongful deaths.”
Wrongful death lawsuits or claims usually are filed by family members or beneficiaries of the decedent. Often, claims are filed in order to obtain monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have provided; however, other damages that may be recovered include:
• The loss of the decedent’s love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society and moral support.
• The loss of the enjoyment of sexual relations
• The loss of the decedent’s training and guidance
• Financial support that the decedent would have contributed to the family during this/her expected lifetime
• Expense associated with the death, e.g. medical and funeral
• Lost benefits, such as insurance, from the death
Wrongful death lawsuits take time, understanding and compassion. Knowing the family, and realizing the impact such a traumatic experience has played, is key to obtaining the highest compensation. In such cases your attorney should know who the deceased person was; what that person’s goals and dreams were; what were his/her passions and hobbies; who were his/her friends; what was the person’s community involvement; what guidance did the deceased provide for the family; how he/she is now missed. Melissa Mack is an attorney who cares to understand your loved one and their relationship to their family and friends. She will take the time, develop the understanding, and have the complete compassion such a case warrants, in order for her to fight for you and your family.
