Understanding State Wrongful Death Laws
Any accident or incident that can cause personal injuries can also, in some cases, cause death. If an accident was caused by someone’s negligence, that person is responsible under wrongful death law for certain damages. We help families recover compensation for deaths suffered in situations such as:
- Auto and Truck Accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Slip and Fall Incidents
- Defective Products
Wrongful death is a unique area of statutory law adopted by the state legislatures rather than a product of legal tradition like personal injury law. The arguments for compensation are different, and you need a lawyer who is familiar with the specific issues involved in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Ensuring the Estate is Properly Represented
If the deceased person has an estate that is going through the probate process, the executor or administrator of the estate, as well as the family, can bring a wrongful death lawsuit. If an estate has not been opened in the orphan’s or probate court, we understand how this process works and can get an administrator appointed so your family can proceed with a comprehensive wrongful death claim.
