Attorneys Providing Compassionate Representation In Wrongful Death Cases
Dealing with the loss of someone you love is difficult even under “ideal” circumstances (such as dying of natural causes after a long and happy life). But, when a loved one is taken before their time, without notice and because of the negligent or willful acts of another person, the death is particularly difficult to accept and understand. In these cases, it is appropriate for family members to seek accountability and compensation with the help of an experienced attorney.
If you’re facing the grief of a loved one’s preventable death, our caring and experienced team at Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law, is ready to help you understand you rights and legal options. Our lawyers have more than 75 combined years of legal experience, and they have helped clients recover tens of millions of dollars in personal injury and wrongful death compensation.
How Wrongful Death Differs From Personal Injury
Basically, any accident scenario that would warrant a personal injury lawsuit would also qualify for wrongful death litigation, depending on the outcome of the accident. Some examples include:
- Fatal injuries sustained in auto accidents
- Accidents on dangerous property, including fatal slips and falls
- Hospital or physician negligence
- Workplace negligence
- Fatal injuries caused by dangerous and defective products
The two major differences between personal injury and wrongful death are the degree of the injury (fatal vs. non-fatal) and who serves as the plaintiff. Because the victim died, someone else will need sue on behalf of the victim and their surviving loved ones.
Let Us Help You Claim Compensation
The law cannot fill the void that a loved one’s death causes, but it can recognize the value of the victim’s life, compensate for death, compensate the family for economic loss, and hold the negligent party accountable as the family grieves and heals. Our attorneys will do everything they can to obtain compensation for:
- Medical services
- Memorial and burial expenses
- Injury to the deceased
- Family suffering
- Punitive damages
- Pecuniary damages
Our attorneys are ready and prepared to bring sensitivity and unrelenting commitment to your case. They will work tirelessly to maximize your compensation and honor the memory of the person you have loved and lost.
