Holding Parties Liable For Fatal Accidents

If you have lost a loved one due to an act of negligence, you may have the right to pursue a claim for their death and your loss. The first step is to determine what caused the death, and whether the cause of death was due to someone's negligence or carelessness. In order to hold a negligent party legally accountable for their actions, it is imperative that an investigation be conducted and documented as quickly as possible. Failure to do so could lead to the loss of critical information and evidence. The loss of this evidence could lead to the loss of the prospective claim.

Exploring Liability After An Accident

In wrongful death cases, there may be several ways to hold the negligent party accountable. The primary option is to file a civil claim against the negligent party. In doing so, we can make them pay financially for the wrongful death that they caused.

If the wrongful death was the result of a criminal action, we can also work with the police department and prosecuting authorities to see that the person who caused the wrongful death receives an appropriate punishment. Family members of victims have the right to provide direct input in these matters. In either event, you can rest assured that we will vigorously pursue your claim, and always with your best interests in mind.

Dedicated To Acting In Your Best Interest

We take the time to provide personal and individualized attention to each client and to each case. We pursue claims that are always calculated to serve your best interests. Wrongful death cases may occur as a result of any of the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Light-rail accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Campus accidents
  • Negligent security
  • Explosions

If you have lost a loved one, nothing can ever fully or adequately replace that life or compensate you for your loss. Nevertheless, the law provides, and you have the right to pursue, a claim for compensation for the wrongful death caused by the intentional, negligent, or careless act of another.
