Brown Wharton & Brothers Attorney Settles $1,425,000 Wrongful Death Case
A scheduled hysterectomy turned deadly for a middle-aged wife and mother. The attorney that handled the case says about the experience:
“This was a tough case to take on, but once I met the family, I knew it was the type of case that cried out for justice, and so we agreed to throw the firm’s full weight behind representing them. Even though no amount of money can bring back a mother and a wife, I think that achieving what we did not only provides a sense of justice for the family, it also will provide money for the continued education and raising of her children.”
