Helping Surviving Family Members After A Wrongful Death
Losing a loved one due to someone else’s negligence can cause a great deal of additional grief knowing that the death was most likely preventable. Those negligent parties need to be held accountable for their deadly actions.
At Bentoff & Duber, we understand how difficult it is to deal with the wrongful death of a loved one. We are sensitive to our clients’ needs, handling the situation with the utmost care and compassion. Our attorneys help clients seek justice in wrongful death and other personal injury cases.
When Negligence Leads To A Death, Know Your Rights
We represent clients who have suffered losses of loved ones in a wide range of fatal accidents:
- Auto accidents: When drivers operate their vehicles in a reckless manner, serious car crashes can occur, which can lead to cars rolling over, being completely totaled or hit by numerous vehicles, among other types of fatal wrecks.
- Medical malpractice: Medical errors can often be deadly. These mistakes include doctors and nurses misdiagnosing a patient, improperly handling the delivery of a child, prescribing a dangerous drug, providing the wrong medication dosage and more.
- Defective drugs and medical devices: Dangerous or recalled prescription drugs, such as Zantac, can cause health conditions such as cancer, causing life-altering illness or death. Dangerous or recalled medical devices, such as hip implants, can wreak havoc on a patient’s life. These drugs and medical devices can cause unnecessary pain and suffering in patients before they succumb to the drug or device.
- Other situations: We handle any accident situation in which a death was caused by someone else’s negligence.
Seeking Justice And Recovery
While we know that nothing can bring your loved one back, it is our goal to not only hold the negligent party responsible but also ease the financial burden that has now been placed on you. We may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for funeral expenses, medical expenses incurred before death, loss of care and companionship, lost future income, compensatory and punitive damages, and more.
