Wrongful Death Cases

Personal Injury

A Wrongful death action maybe brought for intentional or unintentional acts that cause the death of another.

Survivors of the victim hold the right to bring a Wrongful Death claim. In some situations that right may be held by a spouse, a parent or by the children of the deceased.

The loss of a family member, due to someone else’s actions, can never be fully compensated by financial recovery. But monetary damages are all that the law allows in this horrific situation. Damages can include the value of one’s life, medical and funeral expenses, loss of income, etc.

Common causes of Wrongful Death Claims include:
Car and Truck Accidents, Motorcycle Accidents, Medical Malpractice, Construction Site Accidents, Product Defects, and Criminal Acts.

Generally there are two types of claims that exist in a Wrongful Death Claim. The first are damages calculated off of the full value of the decedent’s life from the decedent’s perspective. His lost wages, the value of getting to raise and spend time with his children, and/or spouse. Secondly, the estate of the decedent also has a claim for medical and funeral expenses as well as pain and suffering, including the imminent knowledge of one’s death.

If you or a loved one have been a victim of Wrongful Death, you need an experienced attorney to protect your rights and get the just and fair compensation your family deserves.
