The legal definition of wrongful death is “taking of the life of an individual resulting from the willful or negligent act of another person or persons.” When this happens, the law allows survivors to claim compensation for the death of a family member.
These cases are very difficult and complex, emotionally and legally. The attorneys at Evergreen Personal Injury Counsel understand the particular challenges of a wrongful death claim. We bring years of experience to helping family members manage the emotional aspects of such a case, and receive the greatest compensation the law allows.
We establish not only how death occurred, but also who is responsible. We pour through the facts of an accident, whether it’s a car crash, work injury, medical malpractice, or fault on the part of a government agency. Using nationally recognized experts, as well as our highly trained staff, we develop a comprehensive case that clearly demonstrates who is responsible for the death.
