We Bring Critical Resources and Experience to Wrongful Death Lawsuits
A wrongful death is one that is caused by the negligent or wrongful act of another. Examples include deaths that result from a drunk driving accident, an unsafe property condition or a serious vehicle collision. A wrongful death lawsuit can be filed against an individual or against an entity, such as a corporation or municipality.
We take wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you will only pay attorney fees if we obtain a recovery for you.
While it is clear that no amount of money will replace the loss of a loved one, it can prevent surviving family members from facing financial hardships caused by the loss.
