Wrongful Death Attorneys Serving Rhode Island

Providing Skilled Representation in Your Time of Need

When an avoidable death occurs because of someone’s negligence, it’s referred to as “wrongful death” within the legal and court system. The extensive experience our lawyers have accumulated since the firm’s inception in 1975 enables us to provide solid legal representation in such cases. If another person or a company was responsible for your loss, we can utilize our experience, resources and skill to pursue civil justice for you and your family.

What Constitutes Wrongful Death?

Sometimes people think about wrongful death in the context of hospital or medical errors, negligence by a corporation, or a bad car crash. However, the breadth of situations that can result in wrongful death litigation is quite diverse. Some areas of wrongful death cases are the same kinds of situations as the events listed under our personal injury and other pages. The common theme is that the death may have been avoidable based on the actions of an individual or company.

Our Rhode Island wrongful death lawyers take on cases involving:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective and dangerous products
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Accidents or injuries on another’s property
  • Inadequate security measures or negligent security personnel
  • Airplane accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • General negligence
