Wrongful death

Nothing is more devastating than the death of a loved one.  When a negligent, reckless or intentional act results in death, our office can help hold the responsible party accountable.  Any type of personal injury accident that is fatal can be the basis of a wrongful death claim, including:

  • Medical Malpractice
  • Auto and car accidents
  • Truck, tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, and semi-truck accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Railroad accidents
  • Plane crashes
  • Helicopter crashes
  • Construction accidents
  • Motorcycle, boat or bike accidents
  • Three-wheeler, four-wheeler and ATV accidents
  • Injuries from defective products, equipment and drugs; products liability
  • Recreational accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Fires or explosions
  • Misdiagnosis of disease
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Delaying or failing to provide treatment
  • Drowning
  • Electrocution
  • Falls
  • Chemical exposure
  • Maritime and boating injuries

The surviving family members or those dependent on the deceased for financial support have a right to compensation for their losses.  Proving a wrongful death case and the damages that result from it is difficult because the main witness is not available to testify.  It takes a skilled and experienced attorney to successfully try or settle these cases.

Our office will handle your case in a sensitive, yet professional manner.  Our goal is to help the families of wrongful death victims begin to rebuild their lives by obtaining the closure they need and by getting them compensation they deserve.
