How Will An Attorney Help A Wrongful Death Case?

Wrongful death cases become very complicated and require extensive investigation. Most of the time, individual families of survivors do not have the resources to handle these types of cases on their own. An attorney is your equalizer, helping to ensure you are treated fairly and are able to secure justice for your family. Your attorney will:

  • Thoroughly investigate what happened by reviewing any footage available, speaking to eyewitnesses, obtaining safety records, and reconstructing the accident if necessary.
  • Work with medical and economic experts to determine the losses experienced by the deceased and the deceased’s family.
  • Negotiate with all parties to reach a fair settlement.

What Does Wrongful Death Mean?

A wrongful death case arises when someone is killed due to the careless, negligent, or intentional actions of another person, business, or entity. There are various ways in which these cases arise, including:

  • Vehicle accidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle or pedestrian accidents
  • Workplace incidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
