About Wrongful Death

A wrongful death is a death caused by the negligent or intentional actions of another person. If you have lost a family member or other loved one due to another person's actions, you may be entitled to a large verdict or settlement. No amount of money can bring your loved one back, but with the help of our wrongful death lawyers you may be able to send a message that life-threatening negligence is unacceptable. Your wrongful death attorney will ensure that those responsible for the death understand their mistakes.

There are many scenarios in which a person's irresponsible conduct can contribute to the death of another. Wrongful deaths most often take place in motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents and other workplace mishaps, as a result of defective products, and due to medical malpractice. Anyone who loses an immediate family member to wrongful death can file a lawsuit.

Wrongful Death Damages

As in other personal injury cases, if your wrongful death attorney wins your case, you are entitled to compensation for all financial and emotional losses you suffer. Potential damages include:

  • Lost family income
  • Lost companionship
  • Lost inheritance
  • Lost benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Funeral and other death expenses
  • Medical bills

Additionally, Massachusetts law allows for punitive damages in cases of egregious wrongdoing, such as when the death was intentional or the result of extreme recklessness. Punitive damages are awarded over and above the actual losses resulting from your loved one's wrongful death, and often total in the millions of dollars. Our lawyers are the veterans of countless high-value cases like these.
