Without wishing to appear callous, the question at the top of my mind is this: why do the lawyers feel that they have to manipulate the jury's emotions so completely to get the result they want? Under these circumstances, I just don't understand how it's possible for an impartial verdict to be reached. We're all human. If this is a case of medical malpractice, how is the (shocking and cruel) fact that the victim left behind a family in the slightest bit relevant to what the surgeons did or did not do on the day? As humans we're simply not capable of completely subsuming our cognitive biases, and only one side here has the freedom to take advantage of them. Regardless of the merits of the case, that's simply wrong. You, and the family involved, have my sympathies.
