Wrongful Death

The death of a beloved family member is both tragic and devastating. A wrongful death lawsuit is brought when you believe that your loved one died as a result of someone else’s negligence. Whether the cause was medical malpractice, a car accident, or any other preventable tragedy, the death of a loved one leaves a grieving family to pick up the pieces.

Damages can be awarded to statutory beneficiaries defined by statute to compensate for things like sorrow, mental anguish, and solace. You can also recover damages for the loss of your loved one’s income to your family, loss of care, protection and assistance, expenses for treatment or hospitalization, and funeral expenses. Although no amount of money can compensate you for your loss, the legal team at Hammer Law can help to hold the wrongdoer accountable and to ease your family’s burden.
