Wrongful Death: Losing a loved one is one of the worst experiences you can go through, and it can be even more heartbreaking when he or she died because of a preventable accident. We are here to stand with you during this difficult time and take care of your legal case so you are free to focus on your life. A wrongful death is when the death of one is caused by the wrongful act of another. That “wrongful act” could be intentional, reckless, or negligent—it could even be an omission.  A wrongful death lawsuit is one that would be a personal injury suit, except that the person is no longer alive to recover from that action. Instead, his/her representatives (or survivors) must bring the suit on his behalf to recover damages.

Our lawyers handle cases of wrongful death resulting from car accidents, medical malpractice, neglect in a nursing home, work accidents, dangerous products, and other causes. When accidents turn fatal, surviving family members often find themselves overwhelmed by feelings of grief. In addition to emotional loss, the loss of income and benefits may make it hard for families to make ends meet.  We help family members get the financial compensation they need to pay their bills and support their families. We also pursue compensation for the loss of emotional support and emotional pain and suffering caused by the loss of a loved one. Although we cannot make up for the loss of your loved one, together we can work to bring justice to the forefront of this untimely tragedy.

If your loved one was killed in an accident or due to the negligence of another, you are entitled to compensation. Contact the attorneys of Cathy Christensen & Associates at (405) 752-5565 for your free consultation.
