Why hire a wrongful death lawyer?
Injuries and violence affect everyone, regardless of age, race, or economic status. For Americans 1 to 44 years of age, traumatic injuries are the number-one cause of death. In fact, people in that age group are more likely to die from an injury—such as a motor vehicle crash, fall, or homicide—than from any other cause, including cancer, HIV, or the flu, according to the Center for Disease Control.
More than 180,000 people die from injuries each year — 1 person every 3 minutes and seat belts saved an estimated 255,000 lives between 1975 and 2008.
Long after a fatal accident, families feel the loss of a loved one who died because of the negligence or acts of others. Having lost loved ones of our own and practicing law in these areas for well over a decade, our lawyers are cognizant of the pain felt by survivors and offer compassionate representation in wrongful death litigation.
