Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims result from a death that happens because of the negligence of another person or a company or governmental agency.  Wrongful death can occur as the result of a motor vehicle accident; as the result of the negligence of a nursing home or hospital;  or a worksite injury.

A wrongful death can even occur when a tavern or bar serves a visibly intoxicated person and that person drives while intoxicated and causes the death of another person in a motor vehicle accident.

Wrongful death claims can be made against pharmaceutical companies for producing drugs that kill or injure the person taking those drugs.
