Losing a loved one will always feel “wrong,” but the term “wrongful death” refers to something more specific. When someone dies as the result of another person’s mistake, their family has every right to take legal action against the person or people who caused their death. For instance, you could hold any of the following people legally and financially accountable for a wrongful death: the at-fault driver in an auto accident, the doctor who prescribed the wrong medicine, or the neglectful caretaker who failed in their nursing home duties.
Despite our decades of experience in this area of law, we at the Law Offices of Steven Zwick would never presume to understand what you’re going through. Every loss is different, and each one is devastating in its own way. We fully respect your situation and want only to help you get through this with as little difficulty as possible. For our part, we’ll handle the legalities so you can focus on healing.
In law, proving fault isn’t about getting revenge on the responsible party. Rather, it’s about making sure that person (or those people) don’t ever cause the same harm to anyone else. By filing a claim on behalf of your loved one, you could be saving future lives.
While financial stress pales in comparison to your loss, it’s still a very real concern. Fortunately, a successful wrongful death claim can cover a number of costs, including funeral expenses, the would-be income of your loved, and more.
One of the most common comments we hear from our wrongful death clients: “I don’t want anyone else to ever have to go through this.” We agree. By taking a stand for your tragedy, you are in turn doing your part to prevent history from repeating itself.
