If you lose someone because of another individual’s reckless or careless behavior, you may feel overwhelmed with pain and anger. While no amount of money can bring a loved one back, the deceased’s dependents and other close family members in many cases will need to pursue compensation for financial and emotional losses. That’s where our experienced and compassionate law firm can help you get justice and closure that you deserve.
The following must be shown in order to bring a successful wrongful death lawsuit:
- A person has died.
- The person died as a result of someone’s negligence.
- The deceased is survived by immediate family members (for example, a spouse and children) or dependants.
- The surviving family members have suffered a monetary loss as a result of the victim’s death.
Wrongful death cases can arise from a number of different circumstances, including, but not limited to the following:
- Car accidents
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace accidents
- Malicious acts
- Oilfield accidents
The process is difficult for the family, but we understand and try to make it part of the healing process and not an additional burden.
