    Wrongful Death Attorney

    Losing a loved one can be a deeply painful experience. The grief can quickly become traumatic if the loved one passed away because of the fault of another individual or entity. The surviving family is left to deal with the financial and emotional burden of the loss, and may find some relief through filing a wrongful death lawsuit. 

    A wrongful death lawsuit is when someone is killed as a result of an error, negligence, or malice. Seeking compensation through a wrongful death case can be complex, since you have to show that the action, or lackthereof, from another party contributed to the loved one’s passing. Common examples of wrongful death cases are listed as follows:

    • Car Accident
    • Workplace Accident
    • Medical Malpractice
    • Birth Injury
    • Bicycle Accident
    • Boating Accident
    • Child Neglect/Abuse
    • Defective Product
    • Intentional Violence

    Surviving family members that may qualify to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit are children, spouse, parents, and any others who relied on the deceased person for support. There are various factors that are involved for who can submit a wrongful death claim. Regardless of the exact circumstances of the wrongful death, it’s important to take action quickly on behalf of your loved one taken too soon. 

    The emotional challenge of going through grief while trying to file a lawsuit can feel like too much to bear on your own, which is why many people turn to a lawyer who is experienced in wrongful death lawsuits for advice on how to proceed.
