Wrongful Death

Wrongful death attorneys

When a person dies or is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another, the victim’s family may file a wrongful death claim.

There are a number of situations that might lead to a wrongful death claim:

  • Car accident;
  • Medical malpractice resulting in death;
  • Hazardous work conditions;
  • Criminal behavior;
  • Death during a supervised activity, such as a sporting event or field trip.

If a loved one dies from the careless acts of another, legal issues are probably last thing on your mind. However, it’s imperative to have an attorney involved as soon as possible to preserve evidence and investigate thoroughly. Wrongful death cases can be complicated and difficult to navigate.
