When a person dies as a result of an act of another person or company, the circumstances of the incident may warrant filing a Wrongful Death claim. Examples of Wrongful Deaths include deaths caused by:

  • A motor vehicle collision
  • A dangerous product
  • An unsafe doctor
  • A dangerous condition on a property
  • Unsafe drugs or medications

The purpose of bringing a Wrongful Death suit is to see that family members are compensated for the loss of future income and support that would have been available had the victim survived, and punitive damages if the act that caused death is particularly heinous or reckless. If a family member has died as a result of someone else conduct or actions, we can help you try to recover some of the economic losses suffered.
