Avoid such conflicts by informing every detail about the patient's condition at every crucial situation and informing them that you can't bring back the dead or reverse the damage and can't guarantee life of the patient.
Also inform them all the limitations of medical science, it usually helps them to understand that the doctors tried their best but the disease was overwhelming.

The kind of Lawyer you would want would be one who handles Defamation (who probably is more familiar with the terms Libel and Slander.)
