How do Wrongful Death cases work?

When filing a wrongful death lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove the death was caused by the responsible party. The details often including autopsies as part of the discovery process. If an autopsy can benefit your case, and one was not legally required, we will arrange for a private autopsy on your behalf.

The responsible party’s insurance company rarely explains all of your legal rights because it wants to pay you as little as possible. The insurance company may attempt to minimize your relationship with your deceased family member, or they’ll even claim that you rarely saw or lived far away from each other.
