The death of a loved one caused by another’s negligence is known as a wrongful death claim. The emotional heartache and financial disaster that these sudden accidents cause to a family are recognized by the law, and the spouse and/or family are entitled to compensation as a result of someone’s poor judgment that caused this irreparable damage. Any type of negligence can result in a wrongful death claim.
At the Law Offices of Adelman and Adelman, we will do everything possible to zealously advocate for the rights of the survivors, and to be a comfort to the family members during this horrific time. There are very specific court procedures that must be followed prior to filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
