Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is never easy. It can be even more difficult if that loved one died under suspicious circumstances. The death of a person is labeled as suspicious when a person dies unexpectedly, during an unlawful act or the death cannot be explained by a medical expert, like a coroner.

In the event of a death caused by the negligence of another, a defective product or a dangerous condition of public or private property, certain persons have statutory rights to pursue an action for damages resulting from the wrongful death against the responsible parties. For example, if a loved one dies unexpectedly due to a pacemaker which fails to function as designed, certain persons have the right to pursue a damages claim against the pacemaker manufacturer and perhaps others.
