Losing someone you love is one of the hardest things to face. You are engulfed with grief and the financial burden of funeral costs. But what if your loved one’s death was wrongful and was due to someone else’s negligence? What if their death could have been avoided? You have the power to seek justice for your deceased loved one.
To win a wrongful death claim, the defendant must be proven to have been negligent during the time of the incident that lead to death. In order to prove that the defendant was negligent, it must be shown that they were acting in a reckless or careless manner. A motorist and doctor both have the duty to act with care; whether it be while driving or caring for a patient. If there is a lack of reasonable care in their actions, there is negligence on their part. If the defendant is found to have been negligent which caused the death of the plaintiff’s loved one, they will be held liable for the death.
The negligence of the defendant may cause you and your family the financial burdens of medical bills and funeral expenses. If the deceased left behind dependents, that would be additional damages that could be recovered. There are many factors that can be measured and calculated to find what you are entitled to receive because of the death of your loved one.

Their death could have been avoided and because of careless and reckless actions, their life was taken too soon. We will help you during this difficult time to get you what you and your family deserves on behalf of the deceased.
