Wrongful Death:
An Overview


When someone is killed as a result of negligence or misconduct, family members need an experienced advocate to make sure the person or entity responsible is held accountable. In addition to emotional loss caused by the death, survivors often suffer financial losses due to the death of a wage earner. The law allows families to pursue claims for the emotional losses and financial trauma that the death may have caused.

Whether the death was the result of a car crash, poisoning, drowning, an explosion, a fire, a machinery accident, suffocation, a firearm, carbon monoxide poisoning, drugs or medical/surgical complications, we can help.

At Heller, Gallagher & Finley, L.L.P., we have the knowledge and experience to represent survivors of victims killed by the wrongful acts of others. This includes determining the potentially responsible parties, assessing the full extent of the loss and obtaining financial recoveries that will help the survivors begin to rebuild their lives.
