Nothing hurts more than losing a loved one. It is a tragic fact that many wrongful deaths occur as a result of negligence.  A wrongful death lawsuit cannot bring back the one you love, but can help you obtain compensation for your loss.

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

Some families do not immediately realize the impact a wrongful death can have on their lives.  However, contacting an attorney is always a good idea. Our attorneys understand the delicacy of wrongful death claims and will try to resolve the matter as quickly as possible in a sensitive, tactful manner.

Wrongful death suits may seek recovery of financial losses associated with a person's death.  These losses may include loss of salary and benefits to the deceased party's dependents, funeral expenses and medical expenses.  Since all wrongful death suits will differ, we can help you determine the types of compensation can be sought in a particular case.

Our firm has the resources and knowledge necessary to pursue a wrongful death suit in a successful and expedited manner. While no amount of money can replace a loved one, one need not suffer financial losses because of someone else's negligence.
