If your loved one died as a result of the negligence of another individual or company, we extend our sincere condolences. We understand that there is a huge emotional loss that occurs and that the time following an accident is intensely difficult to handle. We also understand that taking legal action may not be first on your mind. If, however, you are interested in pursuing a lawsuit, our firm can provide the skilled legal help you need throughout a wrongful death action. We can handle the legal components while you and your family focus on the grieving and healing process.
Attorneys at K&F can help you determine whether you have a viable claim pursuant to the Massachusetts Wrongful Death Statute. A wrongful death can be caused by many events including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, defective products, spinal cord injuries, and head injuries. Our attorneys are adept at analyzing the facts leading up to a death and identifying negligent or careless acts, or other misconduct, which was a proximate cause of the death.
Our attorneys can also help you properly identify the beneficiaries of the Massachusetts Wrongful Death Statute, who are entitled pursuant to this statute to collect damages resulting from the death of a loved one. These damages include compensation for a variety of losses such as the deceased’s pain and suffering as well as the beneficiaries’ loss of companionship and financial support due to the death. The statute may allow for the recovery of punitive damages, which our attorneys aggressively seek in the correct circumstances.
When an accident resulting in death occurs, lives are changed forever. While a lawsuit will never recover what was lost, we can work with the deceased’s loved ones to secure damages that will, hopefully, provide some emotional and financial relief necessary to rebuild their lives.
