Wrongful Death Cases
We are experienced lawyers who help families determine the facts of a wrongful death claim. We will advocate on behalf of the deceased and their families in order to name the parties responsible and achieve fair compensation. We will work actively to discover the truth and force the individual, company, or entity responsible to bear the human and fiscal ramifications of their actions.
Common causes of wrongful death include car and motorcycle accidents, bike accidents, work-related accidents, and accidents with defective products. If an individual is killed due to the negligence, inaction or malpractice of a person or company, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed against that party by the family of the victim.
If a pre-trial settlement cannot be reached between parties, the wrongful death case will go to court. Proof of fault must be established to the court in order to win compensation. Proof of fault means proof that the responsible party had a duty to act in a particular way but failed to do so, and thereby caused the wrongful death. If a jury finds that the party was more likely responsible for the wrongful death than not, compensation will be awarded. Compensation may cover the bills and expenses of the wrongful death, and/or the economic and emotional loss for the family involved, and can range from thousands to millions of dollars in compensation.
