If someone's wrongful action results in death, either directly or because of an injury his or her actions caused, that is considered a wrongful death. Survivors are entitled to monetary damages. But since wrongful death laws vary from state to state, it is important to consult a wrongful death attorney with experience dealing with wrongful death cases in your state. The firm of The Law Offices of Michael J. Weiss has successfully represented many clients in wrongful death lawsuits.
Medical malpractice, an automobile accident, failure to provide adequate security, and many other acts or omissions can be responsible for causing a wrongful death. But a wrongful death lawsuit is a complex case because it involves not only a finding of fault but also a determination of the monetary value the loss of life represents. The deceased individual's earning potential, the financial dependence of survivors, as well as medical and funeral expenses, are considered. This is why it's important to work with a wrongful death lawyer or wrongful death attorneys who have a successful record of winning litigation involving wrongful death.
At The Law Offices of Michael J. Weiss, Michael Weiss, Esq. personally handles all wrongful death litigation. As an experienced wrongful death attorney, he has attained successful settlements on behalf of many clients.
