In our years of practice, we have seen accidental or wrongful death claims arising from a broad range of circumstances, from car and truck accidents to dangerous or defective products, from construction accidents to dog attacks. We know how to present your case in ways that a judge and jury will understand, making clear the cause and consequences of your loved one's death.

When we take a wrongful death case, we start our investigation immediately, examining the physical evidence, questioning witnesses and reconstructing the accident, often with the assistance of experts. We work painstakingly to capture and preserve evidence to support your claim and to frame your case in terms that will be easily understandable in court.

We have a comprehensive understanding of the damages that result from accidental or wrongful death and will aggressively argue to help you recover full and fair compensation for all your losses, including

  • Medical bills of the deceased

  • Funeral expenses

  • Past and future loss of earning capacity and financial support

  • Loss of moral support

  • Loss of love, care, comfort and society
