Wrongful Death

When a person is killed in an accident due to the negligence or carelessness of someone else, that is considered wrongful death. Accidents that result in a person’s death are devastating to friends and family of the victim. A wrongful death  takes a tremendous toll, physically, emotionally, and financially on everyone. Anyone who has lost a family member due to the negligence of others is encouraged to contact our lawyers at Nicholson Gluckstein to ensure a proper claim against the negligent parties is pursued.

Family members deserve compensation for their pain and suffering and expenses related to the death of a loved one. Funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and the financial support that would have been provided by the deceased are appropriate reasons for the compensation of family members. The burden of those costs should be borne by the parties liable for the accident.

A wrongful death can occur from a number of accidents where there is a negligent party at fault, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Construction scene
  • Unsafe work environments
  • Drunk drivers
  • Pedestrians struck by motor vehicles
