Losing a loved one is always devastating, but when your family member passes away due to the negligence or reckless conduct of someone else, it is especially tragic. If your loved one died as the result of another party’s bad actions, as your personal wrongful death lawyer, I can help. Call me, an injury attorney in Michigan today to learn more and discuss the first steps you should take.
Wrongful death is defined as a death caused by a wrongful act that, had the victim lived, he or she would have had a personal injury claim against the responsible party.
The purpose of a wrongful death action is not to simply seek compensation for the loss of your loved one’s life. No amount of monetary damages can make up for the loss you have suffered.
A wrongful death action can, however, hold the responsible party accountable, deter similar harmful conduct in the future, and obtain necessary funds to pay medical bills, funeral expenses, and help make up for lost wages and benefits provided by your deceased loved one.
Seeking justice for your loved one can help ease your grief during such a difficult time. As an experienced wrongful death attorney in Michigan, I can examine the facts of your case and walk you through the process of deciding whether filing a wrongful death claim is the right course of action for your family.
Wrongful death claims can stem from almost any situation in which a person is killed due, at least in part, to someone else’s negligent or dangerous behavior. Companies, hospitals, employers and individual persons may all be held responsible for causing a person’s death.
Some of the most common types of wrongful death claims we handle include but are not limited to:
Wayne County, Oakland County, Macomb County, St. Clair County, Genesee County, Washtenaw County and more.
