Wrongful Death Lawyer

Wrongful Death

When a person’s death results from the negligence or misconduct of another person or entity (e.g. a company), a wrongful death suit may be in order. A wrongful death suit differs from other kinds of personal injury claims in that the victim (referred to as the decedent) is not bringing the suit. Rather, the suit is brought by the family members of the victim’s estate with the help of a wrongful death lawyer.

A wrongful death claim can help the victim’s family recover damages from injuries they or the estate have suffered because of the death of their loved one.
