Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims are claims in which someone has lost their life due to the negligence or fault of another party. The goal of a wrongful death lawsuit is to alleviate any financial stress for surviving relatives of the deceased. While a wrongful death lawsuit cannot makeup for the loss of a loved one, it can compensate surviving family members or medical expenses, funeral costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.

The wrongful death lawyers at our firm have represented clients in wrongful death cases arising from motor vehicle accidents, defective products, pharmaceutical malpractice, medical malpractice, construction accidents, negligent medical practice, and other causes.
