Brandon Wrongful Death Lawyer

When the death of a family member has been caused by negligent behavior, carelessness, recklessness, irresponsibility or intentional misconduct of another person or company, you may be entitled to receive monetary compensation in the form of “damages” to cover medical costs, loss of companionship, lost wages and emotional and physical pain for “wrongful death.” Only a licensed attorney can evaluate whether you have a case that is worth pursuing in a wrongful death action. The professional and aggressive representation received as a client of Holland & Lamoureux will enable you to focus on recovering from your loss while we focus on justice and protecting your rights.

The common element in most wrongful death actions is negligence, and the majority of wrongful death suits involve vehicular accidents, such as automobiles, ATVs, motorcycles, tractor-trailers, snowmobiles, etc. Other types of wrongful death claims include public carriers (railroads, planes, buses, and maritime disasters), defective products, medical malpractice, and pharmaceutical liability. An individual is generally negligent if their act or failure to act is unreasonable and results in another’s injury or death as a result of inattention, thoughtlessness, inadvertence, and mistakes.
