Types of Wrongful Death Cases
A wrongful death claim may be based on any type of activity that infringed on your loved one’s rights and resulted in harm. The most common types of wrongful death cases we handle are deaths resulting from car accidents, but we also handle truck accidents, boating accidents, construction accidents, nursing home abuse, defective products, premises liability, negligent security, and medical malpractice. We will work hard to show that the fatal injuries were the result of another’s actions, and that those actions were egregious or outside the realm of reasonable behavior or accepted standards.
