Frank explains the difference between wrongful death and personal injury cases.

When someone dies an unlawful or “accidental” death due to the fault of another, surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit.

The most common causes of wrongful death are motor vehicle accidents, poisonings, fires, falls, choking and drowning. Most occur in the home or in the community, and are often the result of negligence by a person or business. Other causes of accidental deaths include medical negligence by doctors and hospitals, work accidents, fires and explosions, and medication overdoses.

However, we believe it is very important to seek legal counsel right away, not only to pursue the support you need to move forward but also to ensure that the responsible party is held legally and financially accountable.
