Wrongful Death

Home / Practice Areas/ Personal Injury Law/ Wrongful Death

Wrongful death can occur during the commission of a crime, when you are involved in a car or truck accident, or as the result of medical malpractice. In order to prove wrongful death, there must be proof that the person responsible for the death was negligent or reckless in their behavior.

When a family has lost a loved one, no amount of money is going to compensate for that loss. This does not mean that compensation should not be sought on behalf of the family members and survivors. When a family has lost their primary wage earner, the long-term consequences of their death can be financially devastating. The loss of household financial support merely compounds the loss of love and affection and the knowledge that someone willfully caused the death.

When you have lost a loved one either because they were a victim of a crime, or in a car accident involving negligent behavior we can help you file suit to get the compensation your family deserves. If you have lost a loved one because a doctor failed to diagnose an illness or because they prescribed inappropriate medications, we can also be of service.
