Wrongful Death

This is a statutory cause of action that allows a personal representative to bring suit and recover such damages for the wrongful act, omission, or negligence of any person who caused the death of the deceased. The statute is intended to punish a defendant for wrongfully causing the death of someone and to protect human life, to prevent homicide, and to impose civil punishment on takers of human life. Our goal is to help clients navigate through their difficult cases and aid them in recovering for losing a loved one because of someone’s wrongful actions that caused the loved one’s death.
