Facing the death of a loved one is one of the hardest things to do. Regardless of how strong you are, it can be life changing and heart breaking to discover that someone you love has been killed. Finding out that the death could have been prevented can make an already hard situation even harder.

Wrongful death occurs if the death is the result of another party’s negligence, carelessness or inattention including:
- motor vehicle accidents, especially those involving speeding, reckless driving or drinking and driving
- electrical shock
- medical malpractice and medical mistakes
- dangerous products
- exposure to toxic chemicals
Whether the loved one is a spouse, a child, a parent, a relative or a friend, discovering the circumstances surrounding the death that did not need to happen can flip your already broken world upside down. When someone you love dies due to negligence by another party or person, then there is a sense of injustice and anger added to your already whirlwind of emotions.
Losing a loved one can impact more than just your heart
Losing a loved one is hard enough emotionally without thinking about what this loss means financially. If you have lost your spouse then you may be facing
- unexpected mortgage bills and debts
- a loss of income and projected income to pay for daily living expenses
- a loss of companionship and support
- a loss of inheritance and trust funds for your children

Unfortunately, there are strict time limits and statues in place that can make the whole process overwhelming.
