Wrongful Death

When someone you love dies

 

The untimely and premature death of a loved one is can be devastating emotionally and often financially for the survivors. The last thing the survivors want to deal with is gathering evidence to begin proving a wrongful death case. However, insurance companies are doing just that while the survivors grieve and try to recover.
 

It is never too early to retain an experienced, highly qualified personal injury attorney who can sort through the possible legal issues surrounding a very personal loss. If you have reason to think that negligence or a defective product caused the wrongful death of someone you depend on, get the best legal advice to protect yourself in this vulnerable time.
 

Wrongful death cases have many differences from other types of personal injury cases. For example, if the wrongful death is the result of medical malpractice, the statute of limitations begins to run on the date the wrongful conduct occurred and not the date of death, which might be later. Counsel should be obtained without delay.
