The loss of a family member can be devastating.  This is especially true when a loved one is taken from us because of someone else's carelessness.  Families in this situation deserve justice.

Following the death of a loved one, we understand that it is a challenging time and that there are countless things that must be done, such as notifying friends and family members, making funeral arrangements, and dealing with life insurance companies.  As difficult is these things may be, if your family member's death could have been avoided, you should contact an experienced wrongful death attorney to investigate the death and give you sound legal advice on how to move forward.

Understanding the Damages Available to the Family in a Wrongful Death Case

Unfortunately, the death of a loved one may have serious financial consequences, which may include the loss of a significant amount of a family's income.

  • lost support and services 
  • lost spousal companionship and protection
  • lost parental companionship and protection, instruction, and guidance
  • pain and suffering
  • medical and funeral expenses
  • lost earnings
