What is a wrongful death?
Wrongful death is legal term used to describe the death of someone due to the negligence or reckless behavior of another person or business. Establishing that another person or company made mistakes which resulted in the death of another person can be extremely complicated.
In this type of claim, the family as a group can seek to recover damages (financial compensation) for the loss of love and companionship, as well as the economic impact of the loss of a loved one’s income.
Determining the financial impact of the loss of a loved one can be a difficult process, but our experienced attorneys can help. We can explain all the legal options available to you. That way, your family can make intelligent choices and pursue the smartest legal strategy.

Should I file a wrongful death lawsuit?
There’s no easy answer to this seemingly simple question. Sometimes, filing a wrongful death lawsuit is the best way for your family to obtain the compensation they rightfully deserve for the death of a loved one.
But other legal options exist. Discuss your case with an attorney before filing a lawsuit or taking any other legal action after the untimely death of a spouse, child or another immediate family member.
An important factor to consider is the financial impact of the loss of a loved one if the deceased had survived. Whatever settlement or verdict you accept should take into account the true financial impact for the immediate future – and decades to come in many instances.
