Wrongful death is when someone is fatally injured because of the negligence, recklessness, or intentional acts of another person (or a company). When this occurs, relatives of the victim can get justice via a wrongful death lawsuit. This provides compensation for damages; it also forces those who caused the harm to take responsibility for their actions.
We have experience in getting justice for families affected by wrongful death of a family member. A $40 million verdict was reached on behalf of an orphaned 13-year old boy whose mother was murdered by the boy’s father.
Our team also obtained a $6 million verdict for the loved ones of a mother who died as a result of surgical mismanagement of a urological procedure. Tragically, the nurses had incorrectly assembled the machine to be used during surgery — instead of sucking in air, the machine blew out air. The surgeons, who had attended a three-day course to operate the machine, failed to recognize that they had filled the patient’s body with air, resulting in her death.
