Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one or someone close to you can be very devastating and life-changing. If your loss is needless or a result caused by negligence or carelessness, the pain is even greater. Anyone that has suffered a wrongful death deserves  the rights that should be respected. The negligent party can and should be held responsible. Let our team help you.

A wrongful death claim is typically filed by close family members of a person who has died due to the negligence or misconduct of another party. The claim is intended to compensate these individuals for financial losses they have sustained due to the death. Family members may sue the person responsible whether the act was accidental or intentional.

State laws specify which parties are entitled to damages in a wrongful death claim. These typically include the deceased person’s spouse and children. They may also include stepchildren, domestic partners, and parents if these individuals are dependents of the deceased person.
