When Negligence Is A Factor In A Loved One's Death

If you have suffered the loss of a loved one due to another party's negligence, you have the right to hold the negligent party accountable for its actions. Though no amount of money can truly compensate for the loss of a family member, a wrongful death suit can help relieve the financial stress associated with the accident and provide a feeling of justice for the bereaved.

Our attorneys take a compassionate approach to wrongful death cases, guiding our clients through the process and keeping them well-informed every step of the way.

Wrongful Death Damages

A wrongful death case is intended to compensate surviving family members for the emotional and financial losses they have suffered as a result of another party's negligence.

The death of a loved one can bring a great deal of financial stress on a family. Hospital bills and funeral expenses can put a family hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt in the days and weeks following an accident. Perhaps even more seriously, the loss of a family wage earner can result in a permanent loss of income, leading to long-term financial instability.

In addition to the monetary losses, a wrongful death suit can also compensate for emotional suffering. The absence of a loved one's companionship and comfort is a loss that family members must live with for the rest of their lives. Our lawyers will take this emotional suffering into account as we push for an appropriate settlement.
