A wrongful death occurs when a person is killed as a result of the negligence or misconduct of another person, company, or entity. It can be the consequence of a car collision, medical malpractice, use of a dangerous or defective product, unsafe premises, airplane crash, fire, or from another fatal event.
The loss of a loved one causes turmoil and hardship. During this difficult time, it is important for the family to receive expert advice and representation from an experienced attorney. Unfortunately, negligent parties responsible for causing tragic deaths often are not held accountable for their wrongful conduct due to the failure of surviving family members to seek legal assistance. Claims are often lost because the legal claims were not timely asserted or because critical evidence was not promptly preserved.

For these reasons, we believe our skilled and experienced attorneys are best qualified to walk you through this complex process so that your rights will be protected and the wrongdoers will he held accountable for their actions.
