Wrongful death claims

A "wrongful death" claim is brought when a person dies as the result of another person's negligence or intentional wrongdoing. Wrongful death cases can result from vehicular collisions, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, intentional assaults, and other circumstances that have the potential to cause serious physical harm. What all wrongful death claims share is that the death was preventable and would not have happened if the wrongdoer had not failed to perform or violated a legal duty. 

The unexpected death of a loved one is always devastating. The emotional and mental toll is severe and long-lasting. The financial consequences can be significant.  The attorneys at Choate Law Firm have experience fighting on behalf of families who have suffered because of a death that would not have happened but for wrongdoing.
