Massachusetts Wrongful Death Lawyers
We have achieved exceptional results for family members of wrongful death victims of catastrophic injury and wrongful death in Massachusetts.
No loss is greater than the wrongful death of a loved one. We represent grieving families in their claims for compensation against the people responsible for your loss.
A wrongful death claim allows family members to collect damages for loss of future wages, medical expenses prior to death and loss of companionship. Depending on the circumstances, a claim for gross negligence and punitive damages may be viable. In Massachusetts, a wrongful death claim must be filed by the person appointed by a probate court to be the personal representative of the deceased person's estate. Our wrongful death attorneys will assist you in all probate proceedings necessary to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
