Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

Personal injury claims may arise from medical malpractice, automobile accidents or criminal acts. A wrongful death lawsuit alleges that the decedent’s death was in whole or part the result of liability on the part of the defendant. Usually, the victim’s surviving spouse, children or dependents are entitled to monetary damages as a result of the defendant’s conduct.

Damages that may be recoverable in a personal injury claim include:

  • immediate medical expenses associated with the death
  • funeral expenses
  • loss of victim’s anticipated future earnings until the time of retirement or death
  • loss of benefits caused by the victim’s death (retirement, medical, dental, life insurance)
  • loss of parental guidance
  • loss of care or companionship to the survivors
  • general damages

Types of liability for personal injury and wrongful death may include:

  • negligence
  • liquor liability
  • products liability
  • railroad liability
