About Wrongful Death

Wrongful death involves fatal injuries caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional acts of another party. It can stem from motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, slip and fall injuries, and other circumstances. Wrongful death applies whether a victim is killed instantly or struggles with the effects of injuries for long periods before their death.
