There is nothing more shocking and emotionally devastating than to suddenly lose a loved one. The unexpected death of a parent, spouse, or child can leave a family in turmoil, and the loss of support and companionship that the loved one provided can have ramifications that last a lifetime.
If a person dies due to the negligence or misconduct of an individual, business or facility, then it is considered a wrongful death, and our legal system allows those left behind to seek compensation for the resultant loss of guidance, support, and companionship. This compensation would be in addition to the compensation for the deceased’s pain and suffering prior to death.
Wrongful death can arise out of a broad range of causes including:
• Motor vehicle accidents
• Elder neglect and abuse
• Defective/hazardous products
• Medical malpractice
• Unmarked hazards in businesses or public areas
However, corporations and insurance companies have tremendous resources to thwart the efforts of families who are trying to receive fair and just compensation. Our law firm understands these challenges and can fight for you.
We have years of experience advocating for the rights of our clients and have obtained millions of dollars in compensation on their behalf. As we are paid on a contingency fee basis, there are no upfront costs to you, in most cases.

The gentleman developed and suffered from a Stage 4 pressure ulcer (bed sore) for the last five weeks of his life that became severely infected and contributed to his death. This case was settled within just two months of the law suit being filed.
