Our firm believes one of the most effective ways to honor the memory of your loved one, and to help you move on in the wake of his or her death, is to seek justice and damages from the liable party. We are here to help you obtain that justice and the compensation you truly deserve.

Different Types of Wrongful Death Claims

Wrongful death cases are brought about when one person or group intentionally causes fatal injury to another individual. These types of cases can also take place when a person’s failure to act with sufficient care and common sense results in a loss of life. Some of the many different types of wrongful death claims we represent are those involving car and truck accidents, fatal motorcycle accidents, drunk driving accidents, and other motor vehicle accidents. We also represent the families of those who have been killed in biking and pedestrian accidents. Our firm actively pursues all types of medical malpractice claims, premises liability claims, and other insurance claims that resulted in a wrongful death.
