Wrongful Death Claims
Supportive Representation Following a Fatal Accident
The personal injury lawyers of Kane Shannon Weiler LLP offer sympathetic and diligent representation to the families of wrongful death victims. We bring our experience to assisting families in seeking all benefits to which they are entitled for their loss.
Wrongful death claims provide compensation for the surviving spouses and dependent children of victims of fatal accidents such as fatal car accidents, work-related accidents or medical malpractice. Benefits may include compensation for:
- Loss of income the loved one provided for the family
- Funeral costs and burial expenses
- Loss in household support
Compensation for emotional or psychological trauma caused by the loss may also be available if a surviving spouse or family member was also involved in the accident or witness to the accident, though this is determined on a case-by-case basis.
We strive to remain sensitive to our clients' needs during this emotionally difficult time. Our lawyers take care of the legal details of the claim and provide regular communications to keep our clients informed through each stage in the process.
