Our attorneys pursue wrongful death claims on behalf of surviving spouses and children and obtain compensation for funeral expenses, loss of future earnings, medical bills, physical pain, and mental suffering from the parties responsible for the wrongful death.
Wrongful death claims can be brought against anyone who, through recklessness, carelessness, negligence, or lack of skill, causes the fatality of another. Wrongful death can be the result of many types of circumstances, including drunk driving or reckless driving, medical malpractice (such as through surgical error or misdiagnosis of an illness), defective machinery or products, premises liability, or improper supervision.
There are various components of monetary damages in a wrongful death case, including:
Wrongful death claims can involve a range of complicated legal processes and issues and involving an attorney in your case as early after the death as possible is always advisable. Waiting to hire an attorney runs the risk of losing the case to technicalities, such as statutes of limitations and other critical deadlines that can influence the outcome of your case.
Retaining an attorney that you trust, with the tenacity and trial experience to see your case through to its most just conclusion is essential in a wrongful death claim. For many families facing the wrongful death of a loved one, Blitz Law Group has been the right law firm for the job.
