Wrongful death

Aggressive advocacy, outstanding legal expertise, and compassionate representation.

Wrongful death refers to a legal claim made against a person or entity who is responsible for causing the death of another person due to their negligent or intentional actions.  A wrongful death claim is typically filed by the surviving family members or estate of the deceased person.

In order for a wrongful death claim to be successful, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant’s actions or omissions were a cause of the death and that the defendant had a legal duty to exercise reasonable care to prevent harm to the deceased person.  The damages awarded in a wrongful death claim may include compensation for medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost income and benefits, and loss of companionship.

Wrongful death claims can arise from a wide range of situations, including car accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, workplace accidents, and criminal acts.  It is important to consult with a personal injury attorney to determine whether you have a valid wrongful death claim and to navigate the complex legal process involved in pursuing such a claim.
