If a loved one was killed in a drunk driving accident, in a construction accident or in a car, truck or motorcycle accident caused by negligence, contact a lawyer about a wrongful death lawsuit.

What caused the wrongful death accident?

  • Drunk driving wrongful death accident: We will, of course, investigate the accident itself and obtain evidence of drunk driving. Our investigation will also include what happened before the accident. Was the drunk driver served in a bar despite being obviously drunk? We actively pursue dram shop liability in drunk driving cases.
  • Construction site wrongful death accident: Did a subcontractor’s actions contribute to the accident? Did the general contractor bypass OSHA rules to meet a deadline? Is the manufacturer responsible for faulty scaffolding? A fatal construction site accident could have a workers’ compensation death claim as well as a third-party liability claim.

Our investigation will look beyond the accident so that the insurance company and the jury will fully understand your family’s losses. No matter what kind of accident your loved one was in, we have the ability and determination to represent your loved one’s estate and your family. Wrongful death accidents include:
