Accident or Wrongful Death | Loss of Support | Funeral or Burial Expenses | Survivor Benefits

When you experience the death of a loved one because of the careless or negligent acts of another person, the grief and loss can paralyze you, making it difficult to know what’s in your best interests. You can’t put a monetary value on the loss of a parent, sibling or child. But there are often ways that you suffer financially after the death of a family member. You may have lost the support they provided you or you may have significant expenses related to their death. You have the right to hold those responsible accountable for their actions. We can help.
