Wrongful Death Attorney
Our qualified and compassionate team is dedicated to seeking justice on your behalf, seeking to secure a settlement that covers medical expenses and helps to get you back on your feet after a loved one’s wrongful death.
Losing a loved one is never easy, but when it happens unexpectedly because of the negligence of others, it can be particularly traumatic. Even worse, you may be left to deal with pressing concerns like funeral arrangements, going through probate, and perhaps muddling through a complex web of legal and financial issues, all while you’re weighed down by grief.
Unfortunately, thousands of deaths each year are related to accidents like car crashes, medical errors, slip and fall incidents, and more. Some of these accidents are entirely preventable.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 36,000 motor vehicle crash fatalities(opens in a new tab) were in the U.S. in 2019. In 2016, Johns Hopkins patient safety experts estimated that over 250,000 deaths in the U.S. each year(opens in a new tab) are linked to medical error. The number of deaths related to unintentional falls was over 39,000(opens in a new tab) in 2019, according to CDC estimates.
While not all of these incidents rise to the level of wrongful death, there are certainly cases in which death could have been prevented if not for the negligence or extreme recklessness of others. This is where a wrongful death lawyer enters the picture.

We understand how hard it can be to muster the will to fight medical providers, insurance companies, and commercial interests when you’re mourning the loss of a loved one.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death
Wrongful death claims can result in nearly any case in which negligence or extreme recklessness led to the death of another. To have a claim for wrongful death, an accidental death must include:
Negligence includes careless or reckless behavior by another. A breach of duty means that someone, like a driver on the road or a medical professional, owed a duty to the victim and failed in that duty. The negligence or breach of duty must be proven to be the cause of death, and the death must result in some form of quantifiable damages, such as medical bills, funerary expenses, loss of income/earning potential, or pain and suffering of the victim prior to death.
Experienced wrongful death lawyers can help you to determine whether an accidental death of a loved one qualifies for a wrongful death claim.
