What is a Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful death or accidental death lawsuits are meant to compensate those family members left behind after a fatal accident or shooting at an apartment complex or nightclub. The family members are also hurt because they relied on the decedent for financial and emotional support. A wrongful death may be the result of a murder, reckless driving, or a negligent or careless act. It may also be caused by medical malpractice, or many other causes. We can help you determine if you have a viable claim.
