Helping You Fight For Justice After A Wrongful Death
If your loved one was killed due to another’s reckless, negligent or intentional actions, you may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. At Gray Law, PLLC, attorney David Gray understands the difficulties of coping with the loss of a loved one, especially when their passing was avoidable. He helps surviving family members seek justice and compensation after losing a loved one in a preventable tragedy.
Taking Legal Action In The Aftermath Of Tragedy
Typically, family members bring forth a wrongful death claim after losing a loved one under circumstances that would have been grounds for a personal injury claim if the accident victim had not died. A wrongful death claim can arise from:
- Vehicle accidents
- Medical negligence or malpractice
- Dangerous products
- Defective medical devices or drugs
The death of a spouse or parent can cause family members unexpected financial worries. These challenges can be even more burdensome if the deceased was the primary earner. Surviving family members can obtain compensation for:
- The deceased’s pain and suffering
- Medical care costs resulting from the injury
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Lost wages and benefits
- Loss of companionship and consortium
- Loss of guidance and nurturing
In wrongful death claims where the victim’s death was the result of gross negligence, a judge can award punitive damages at their discretion.
