"Wrongful death" is a type of lawsuit brought by the surviving relatives of a deceased person against a negligent party (who caused the death to occur). A wrongful death suit is different from other types of personal injury claims because the actual victim (the "decedent") is not bringing suit, rather it is the family members or the decedent's estate.
As such, a wrongful death claim is brought to recover damages for the injuries that the surviving family and/or estate have suffered due to the death of the victim. At The Knoll Law Firm, we understand that no amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, we help our clients achieve financial security so they can focus on recovering from their loss.
Causes Of Wrongful Death
Every situation involving wrongful death has its own unique set of circumstances. The most common cases involving wrongful death include one of the following:
Defective products/ poisoning
Slip and fall injuries
Assault and battery
Intentional acts such as murder
Construction & other work-related accidents
Auto, trucking, motorcycle or bicycle accidents resulting from the recklessness of another driver or defective manufacturing.
If your family has faced the ultimate loss, our family knows there is no amount of compensation that can lessen your grief, but we can help you determine if the loss of your loved one was due to someone else’s negligence.
