Wrongful Death

​Nothing hurts more than losing a loved one and nothing will ever replace them. But that does not mean that the right to recover for the resulting financial losses should be lost too.  When someone dies their responsibilities do not and often attach to the ones they loved.  No one should be left alone with loss and sorrow and huge financial obligations that resulted from someone's irresponsibility.  No one should bear the pain and loss alone while the person or corporation at fault bears no responsibility for their unlawful act.  If you have lost someone due to negligence, you may be able to recover, at least money, through a wrongful death suit. Wrongful death suits can help a family recover the expenses associated with the wrongful death itself, in addition to any loss of salary, benefits, pain and suffering, companionship, and other factors that can increase the burden on the family already suffering a grave loss as the result of someone’s negligence, faulty product, or from the ill will of another. Vehicular accidents of all types, are the primary causes of wrongful deaths, but tragedy can also  occur in the workplace or from medical negligence.  Manufacturers of dangerous products might also be liable for deaths caused by faulty or unreasonably dangerous products, such as an unsafe automobile parts or drugs with dangerous side effects. Intentional violence that causes death can also be dealt with in a civil lawsuit as well as prosecuted under the criminal laws.

Families of the victim often worry that pursing legal action will only increase their feelings of distress. Sometimes families do not immediately realize the impact that a wrongful death can have on their lives, so contacting an experienced attorney is always a good idea. We completely understand the delicacy of wrongful death suits and promise to resolve matter in the best and most sensitive manner.

Civil Litigation

We defend and prosecute civil actions on behalf of clients in Federal and State courts as well as before state agencies in various Administrative Hearings. We represent individuals, business clients, and athletes in lawsuits involving a variety of concerns including contract disputes, real estate matters, and other commercial circumstances. For plaintiffs involved in a civil litigation, the objective is to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or to obtain compensation for an injury.  On the other hand, defendants in civil litigation want to protect their rights in opposing the plaintiff’s claim. Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney is crucial in achieving a successful outcome in your case.
