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.
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 are 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.
Although we cannot guarantee outcome or value, the following examples of past case wins provide insight into the types of death claims we handle, as well as our success in seeking compensation for our clients.
