Wrongful Death Claims

"Wrongful death" is the legal term for personal injury litigation on behalf of families whose loved ones have died in an accident. Such accidents can occur in auto collisions or any other type of incident.

In wrongful death claims, attorneys aim to get families compensation for a whole host of consequences, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased
  • Emotional loss of the survivors
  • Loss of consortium (relationship between husbands ands wives)
  • Loss of companionship and financial support
Above all, wrongful death litigation can bring about justice and prevent future accidents. People and organizations who are hit with a lawsuit will think twice about endangering other people in a similar way ever again. And others may hear about the case and make their own practices safer.

Experience Counts

Michael Adams has experience in wrongful death litigation. He was co-counsel in a case involving a woman who died in a hospital recovery room following routine elective surgery. The resultant lawsuit contended that her death resulted from a negligent failure to monitor her vital signs. A substantial settlement was obtained on the brink of trial.
