Protecting victims of negligence or reckless acts
Wrongful death is a death caused by any negligent or reckless act. It can occur in various situations, such as train wrecks, construction accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect and automobile crashes.
When someone’s negligence or recklessness causes the death of a loved one, surviving family members are entitled to be compensated for their loss. Often the surviving spouse and children are devastated, not only emotionally, but financially, by the loss of a loved one.
Our experienced wrongful death attorneys have received verdicts and settled many wrongful death cases for families. Aside from conducting a complete investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death, a crucial part of these cases involve extensive use of experts, such as economists and other consultants, to prove the dollar amount of lifetime financial support the deceased would have provided to the surviving family member.
Although the surviving family is entitled to compensation for loss of love and companionship, often, if established with appropriate evidence, loss of financial support can be a very large component of recoverable damages. Our qualified Phoenix wrongful death lawyers can help you fight for the compensation your family needs and deserves.
