Wrongful Death • Help When You Need It Most
Caring, compassionate wrongful death attorneys guide families through a stressful legal process
Our clients experience few circumstances more devastating than losing a close loved one through the wrongful or negligent acts of another. At such a poignant moment, financial compensation does little to ease the momentous pain the family is enduring. However, having the available funds to pay expenses and cover some of the lost future support can alleviate some of the stress and help families as they try to rebuild their lives. Also, loss of education opportunities and training for surviving children may be compensable in some cases.

What constitutes wrongful death?
The term wrongful death applies to any fatality caused by negligent acts of other parties, be they physicians, hospitals, auto or truck drivers, etc. Wrongful Death statutes govern these tragic losses and permit survivors to pursue compensation to help cover pecuniary losses and support and also in some cases, loss of companionship, services and other human losses. The unique facts of each case determine what is recoverable, as does the local applicable law.
Addressing the complex issues pertaining to wrongful death by medical malpractice or other tragic accidents
The unfortunate truth is that medical negligence causes too many needless fatalities each year. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Patient Safety Network cites a recent three-year study showing that nearly 250,000 hospitalized Medicare patients died needlessly due to preventable medical errors. Wrongful death and survival claims require an experienced lawyer who can prove liability and accurately anticipate and assess the full extent of past, current and future financial losses. Fatalities caused by negligent hospitals or medical providers or negligent auto or truck drivers require an attorney with the knowledge to address technical medical issues.
