Nothing can be more devastating than the loss of a loved one. Wrongful death is a term used to describe a situation in which someone’s negligence results in another person’s death. Sometimes, negligence results in an injury that later leads to death, but the untimely death of that person is still the direct result of the negligent party’s action. The damages in wrongful death cases differ significantly from those of typical personal injury cases and, therefore, require a specialized approach from a dedicated and experienced trial lawyer.
