Through wrongful death litigation, the law seeks to protect the families of victims who die due to another’s negligent or wrongful actions. A loved one’s untimely death not only causes a devastating emotional loss for his or her family, but it can also result in devastating financial losses. These losses come in the form of lost income, medical bills resulting from the injury and subsequent death, and other expenses associated with the family member’s wrongful loss of life. Our firm knows how to deal with this incredibly difficult time with the patience and delicate care that is necessary.
Wrongful death cases can come in many forms: a car crash where one driver operates their vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and subsequently kills a passenger or another driver; products liability wherein a faulty product causes the consumer’s death; surgical errors or hospital mistakes by attending physicians or medical professionals that lead to the death of a patient are all forms of wrongful death cases. In such cases, the individual or group can and should be held liable for any negligent or wrongful actions.
