Can I File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Any financially or emotionally dependent relative or grantee of someone who has died at the hands of another’s negligence has the right to file a wrongful death suit. In order for a death to be considered wrongful, in the legal sense, it must have occurred by a responsible party’s misconduct, or negligence of duty. This means that the person had a duty to behave differently than they did, and that a reasonable person would have acted otherwise under similar circumstances. Their negligence, recklessness, or deliberate actions resulted in a fatality that could have been avoided. As an experienced personal injury lawyer, I can help determine the state of your case. Call me for a free consultation.

Filing a wrongful death claim seeks to get you, the survivor, compensation for your loss in the form of monetary damages. However, there is a time limit as to when a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed, so contact me as soon as possible after the incident. I know that it is probably the last thing on your mind during this tough time. But the sooner you act, the more fairly we can get you compensated.

Whether your loved one has been lost due to an auto accident, hospital negligence, nursing home abuse, medication errors, birth injuries, or one of countless other ways they may have been fatally injured, I will help you.

What to Expect From a Wrongful Death Case

As your personal injury lawyer, I will dig into the case to find the facts. I will have to prove that the person responsible for your loved one’s death had a duty to uphold, and failed. And that their negligence has directly resulted in a fatality, and that damages ensued.

As an experienced and successful wrongful death lawyer, I feel for you and the situation you are in, and will protect your rights. 

Depending on your relationship with the deceased, and how financially or emotionally dependent you were upon them, the types of compensation we will pursue will vary.

Children, spouses, parents, and grantees all qualify for separate types of monetary damages, and I will help you determine how much you may be able to recover for your loss.
