In a wrongful death claim, surviving family members may be able to recover the following types of damages:

  • Survival damages (pain and suffering prior to death)
  • Loss of consortium, companionship
  • Past medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Dependants, such as spouses and children, may be able to recover future lost wages

Spouses and children are always eligible to file a wrongful death claim. Parents of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim if the deceased did not have a spouse or children.

When handling a wrongful death suit, our law firm typically meets with your family to discuss your goals and answer your questions about the legal process. We will keep you updated on the status of your case as it proceeds through the legal process and will always promptly return your phone calls. We are committed to providing a high level of personal service from the beginning of your case until the end.

In addition to representing clients in wrongful death lawsuits, we also handle cases involving serious injuries and life-altering injuries.
