Wrongful Death

When you discover that someone has mistreated or neglected a person you love, you may be overcome by fury or indignation. When that loved one passes away in light of such circumstances, nothing feels right at all. In those moments, it’s easy to get caught up in feelings of resentment, rage, or even revenge, all of which are natural reactions to loss.

But rather than acting in the name of anger or revenge, consider instead how you are ultimately going to move forward and seek justice for the wrong that has occurred. True, nothing can bring your loved one back, but the right actions can help to honor their memory and prevent the same injustice from hurting others.

Causes of Wrongful Death

“Wrongful death” means exactly what it sounds like. When a person passes away as a result of someone else’s behavior or negligence, their death is deemed “wrongful.” The cause of their passing could be anything from unsafe working conditions to deliberate violence to a car wreck set into motion by a distracted driver. Sometimes the incident causes a fatal injury. At other times, the culprit is not an injury but a disease, such as mesothelioma caused by months or years of exposure to asbestos.

Nothing can make your loss feel okay, but you can make a difference for others

Let’s Prevent Future Injustice

How to Proceed with Your Case

How your case unfolds will depend upon the circumstances of the injury or illness that has affected your family. But no matter the details of your situation, the first thing you should do is get in touch with an experienced personal injury attorney. I myself have been handling a wide variety of personal injury cases, including wrongful death, for well over a decade. Even more importantly, my heart goes out to every client I work with. I don’t just fight for compensation because it’s my job. I fight because I want my clients’ families to be taken care of, and I want those diagnosed with fatal illnesses and injuries to rest easier knowing their loved ones will be alright.

So, no matter what obstacles are in front of you, and no matter how difficult your situation, it’s important to take that first step forward. Call a qualified attorney so that you can start getting your affairs in order and begin the process of acceptance and healing. Whether or not you choose to retain me as your legal counsel, there is nothing I want more for you and your family than a sense of justice and some much-needed peace of mind.
