What constitutes a wrongful death?

A wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to another party’s negligence, misconduct, breach of duty or intentional harm. It can arise from a car accident, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and numerous other types of situations in which the carelessness of another individual or entity proves fatal for an innocent victim.

Losing a loved one is devastating, and more so when the death was preventable. Close family members of the deceased individual can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party to obtain compensation for pain and suffering, loss of companionship, emotional suffering, loss of support, and other damages.

Wrongful death cases can be complex, so it is best to have skilled legal representation. The attorneys at the Joyce and Reyes Law Firm P.A. have extensive experience in helping clients pursue compensation through wrongful death lawsuits.
