Nothing hurts more than losing a loved one. Unfortunately, many wrongful deaths occur as a result of negligence.  If you’ve lost someone due to negligence, you may be able to recover damages through a wrongful death suit.

A wrongful death action arises when a person is killed as the result of negligence, product liability, or malice on the part of another person. Negligence might occur in a situation like an automobile or airplane accident, an accident in the workplace, or medical malpractice. The manufacturer of dangerous products might be strictly liable for deaths caused by faulty or unreasonably dangerous products, such as an unsafe automobile parts or drugs with dangerous side effects. Intentional violence that causes death can also be covered by a wrongful death lawsuit. In that situation, the person or persons responsible may also be prosecuted under criminal law. Close family members may be able to sue to recover damages that result from a wrongful death. 

Families of the victim often worry that pursing legal action will only increase their feelings of distress. Some families do not immediately realize the impact a wrongful death can have on their lives, so contacting an experienced attorney is always a good idea. Our attorneys understand the delicacy of wrongful death suits and will try to resolve the wrongful death lawsuit as quickly as possible in a sensitive manner.

Wrongful death suits can recover the expenses associated with the wrongful death itself, in addition to any loss of salary, benefits, pain and suffering, companionship, and other factors that will increase the burden on the family already suffering a grave loss. Since all wrongful death suits differ greatly, we can help you determine what compensation each family member can seek based on the relationship between the wrongful death victim and the individual survivor.

Our firm has the resources and knowledge necessary to successfully litigate a wrongful death suit. While no amount of money can bring back your loved one, your family need not suffer financial losses because of someone else's negligence.
