Wrongful Death Litigation and Trial Attorneys
It is always difficult to lose a loved one, but when you lose a loved one to another's negligence or recklessness, it is devastating to think that the death could have been prevented. Accidents kill millions of Americans every year and often result in complex litigation to recover costs for lost wages, funeral expenses, pain and suffering damages, and additional personal and financial losses sustained by the family. At Ward & Smith Law Firm we offer experienced advocacy and service focused on the individual needs of families who have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one.
Call us toll free at 866.305.6400 or contact us by email to schedule a free consultation with a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer.
Because wrongful death verdicts can be more substantial than other personal injury claims, insurance companies and other defendants will wage more aggressive defenses against your claim. When you are hiring a wrongful death attorney, it is important you work with an experienced litigator who is prepared to take your case through trial.
We are Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyers experienced in wrongful death cases involving:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Product liability
- Premises liability
- Motorcycle accidents
Who is able to recover for wrongful death?
Wrongful death actions may be brought by the heirs of the individual who was killed by the negligence of another person. Wrongful death beneficiaries (those who can recover compensation for the death of a loved one) include children, parents, and spouses of the victim. Parents may also be able to recover for the death of a minor. Wrongful death cases can be particularly important for families who lose the primary breadwinner of the family.
