Wrongful Death

When someone else’s negligence claims the life of someone close to you, tragedy takes on a whole new personal appearance. Disbelief, anger and despair replace satisfaction, security and love. Questions like “What if we’d left five minutes earlier?,” “If I’d only have taken the other way back …” and “If we’d only have stayed home that day …” replace plans that will never be fulfilled and the love and companionship of someone you cared about.

At a time like this, you need serious, thoughtful and experienced attorneys to act on your behalf.

Pursuing financial recovery for the wrongful act or negligence of another

Wrongful death is a legal term that refers to a death caused by the negligence or wrongful act of another. It serves  as the basis for a civil lawsuit seeking damages on behalf of the decedent’s heirs.

Wrongful death claims can arise from many tragic situations. Our attorneys have experience with wrongful death from motor vehicle accidents from automobile, motorcycle, semi truck and other types of accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and medical device recalls, and other deaths from negligent acts.
