Legal Advice Regarding Wrongful Death Lawsuits
In the immediate aftermath of the untimely death of a family member, legal action may never cross your mind. Other concerns are more important — funeral arrangements, wills and probate, and the high emotions of the grieving process.
If your loved one died in a fatal accident caused by the careless or reckless actions of another person — don’t let too much time go by before you consult an attorney regarding a wrongful death lawsuit.
A wrongful death lawsuit is the family’s chance to force the responsible party to pay for causing the untimely death of a loved one.
If you wait too long, crucial evidence may be lost. Or the deadline to file a wrongful death lawsuit may go by, erasing any chance of receiving financial compensation for the death of your spouse, child or parent.

At The Lawrence Law Firm, we manage wrongful death lawsuits with compassion for our clients and an aggressive approach to making the defendant pay for causing tragedy in your family’s life.
Our law firm focuses exclusively on personal injury cases — including wrongful death lawsuits — and we offer more than 20 years of experience with personal injury and wrongful death actions.
What Is a Wrongful Death Action?
The purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit is to compensate close family members for the loss of a loved one. The financial compensation may include lost income over the expected lifetime of the deceased, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering that go along with the tragedy of a wrongful death.
When we manage wrongful death cases, we employ the services of an expert economist, who examines the financial circumstances of the family to figure out the total value of the lost wages. Our economist will include estimates of lost income, expected raises and promotions, cost of living increases and lost retirement benefits. With all these figures in hand, we will calculate the amount of our demand — then negotiate aggressively with the responsible party to obtain a fair and acceptable settlement on our client’s behalf.
