At Scott & Scott, PLLC, we understand the devastation that wrongful death brings to families, and our compassionate legal team is here to guide you through the process of seeking justice for your loved one.

Understanding Wrongful Death

Wrongful death occurs when an individual’s life is taken due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions of another party. This can happen in various contexts, including car accidents, medical malpractice, workplace incidents, and other preventable circumstances. In these tragic situations, surviving family members have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim to hold responsible parties accountable.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases

Our legal team has experience handling a wide range of wrongful death cases, including but not limited to:

  • Automobile Accidents: Seeking justice for victims of fatal car crashes caused by negligent drivers.
  • Workplace Incidents: Advocating for families when a loved one loses their life in a construction accident, industrial incident, or other work-related mishap.
  • Product Liability: Pursuing claims against manufacturers for defective products that result in fatal injuries.
  • Criminal Acts: Addressing cases where intentional harm or criminal actions lead to wrongful death.

Compensation for Surviving Family Members

While no amount of compensation can replace the loss of a loved one, pursuing a wrongful death claim can provide financial support for surviving family members. Compensation may cover:

  • Funeral and Burial Expenses: Assisting with the costs associated with laying a loved one to rest.
  • Lost Income and Benefits: Compensating for the financial contributions the deceased would have provided to the family.
