In such cases, the victim’s family can file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for its loss.
If someone you love died prematurely due to another party’s negligent or reckless actions, we can provide you with an experienced wrongful death lawyer who will help you find the closure you need during this difficult time.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Eligibility
Immediate family members of the deceased victim are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Depending on state laws, other family members, such as stepparents, grandparents, and dependents, may also be eligible to file a wrongful death claim. Minors may need the assistance of an adult guardian to take a wrongful death suit to court. Our attorneys are experienced in wrongful death cases and assist in determining who is eligible to file a suit in the victim’s behalf.

Wrongful Death Damages

- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of support
- Loss of care and protection
