Broken Bones and Orthopedic Injuries
A wrongful death claim is not like other personal injury claims. For most other kinds of claims, the point is to get compensation for injuries in order to help put the claimant into the same position he or she was in before the damage was done. The point is to try to make life as close as possible to what it would have been if the accident hadn’t happened.
With a wrongful death, there is no way to do this. A wrongful death suit doesn’t attempt to turn back time; the point is to try to help the family of the person who has died minimize the economic damage that his or her loss has caused.
These cases are often very difficult, and often heartbreaking. It’s our job to be compassionate and understanding with our clients, and to do what we can to defend their rights and interests at a time when they can’t do so themselves.
The process of a wrongful death claim may depend on many things that are difficult for your grieving family to deal with, or even think about. Our job as lawyers is to deal with them, so that you can concentrate on more important things such as guiding your family through a very dark time.

There may also be money available to compensate for loss of companionship and care.
