Experienced wrongful death attorneys.

Wrongful death is a legal term used to describe a situation where someone dies as a result of the wrongful or negligent actions of another party. Wrongful death lawsuits are typically brought by the surviving family members of the deceased person, and are intended to compensate them for the losses they have suffered as a result of the death.

Wrongful death can occur in a variety of circumstances, including car accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, and workplace accidents. To prove a wrongful death claim, the plaintiff (i.e. the surviving family members) must typically show that:

  • The death was caused, in whole or in part, by the actions of the defendant
  • The defendant was negligent, reckless, or intentionally caused the death
  • The plaintiff suffered damages as a result of the death


Damages in a wrongful death lawsuit may include compensation for medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, lost income and earning potential, and loss of companionship and support. In some cases, punitive damages may also be awarded to punish the defendant for particularly egregious conduct.

Wrongful death lawsuits can be complex, and require the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney.  An attorney can help the surviving family members to navigate the legal process, gather evidence to support their claim, and negotiate with insurance companies and other parties involved in the case.
