Any situations that can cause an injury can also cause death. When someone dies as a result of an accident, the resulting lawsuit is referred to as a “wrongful death” suit. In the tragic instance when a family member is lost as a result of an accident that was caused by the negligence of another, the survivors have the right to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for their loss.

A wrongful death can occur anywhere, from the workforce to someone else’s premises to the medical office. A wrongful death is caused by someone else’s negligence, mistake, or carelessness and should therefore not be the responsibility of the survivor to bear alone.

Accident InjuryIn times of grief it is difficult for family members to understand the importance of a prompt investigation of the circumstances of the death, the preservation of the evidence, and the identification of all the responsible parties.

Legal actions for wrongful death are generally quite complex, particularly when several negligent parties contributed to your loved one’s death. Some suits may be settled before the matter goes to trial. Others may result in a court case and a verdict. While no amount of money can ever compensate for your loss, the courts can compensate individuals in the case of wrongful death by providing the survivors of the deceased with financial compensation and bringing the responsible party to justice.

We have the experienced staff to work through these issues to ensure that the appropriate amount of compensation is provided to the surviving members of the family for their loss so they do not bear the financial burden alone.
