Caring counselors seek compensation for grieving families

We understand the profound impacts of the loss of a loved one, which is why we devote substantial resources to every wrongful death case we take. The damages awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the accident and the individual's suffering prior to passing. Our attorneys strive to help clients receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance

We employ private investigators and work with expert witnesses to ensure that our cases are as strong as possible. We may also collect and preserve evidence from the accident scene and obtain testimony from people with first-person knowledge of your loved one's passing. We explore all options before focusing in on a tailored legal strategy to help our clients receive the maximum compensation possible.
