If you or your friends or family have lost a loved one due to Wrongful Death, Finklea Law Firm can help you find closure through bringing negligent parties to justice and filing for financial compensation to which you are entitled! A wrongful death claim is one holding another party liable for a person's death due to their negligence or misconduct. Those claims can be based on many circumstances. However, here are some examples:

  • Automobile Accidents Due to Vehicle Malfunction - Insurance companies and/or manufacturers may be held liable for fatal accidents which occured due to defective parts of the vehicle.
  • Automobile Accidents Due to Another Driver - When someone dies due to the negligence of another driver, suit can be filed against the insurance company to receive compensation on behalf of the deceased.
  • Medical Malpractice - In some instances, hospital workers, anesthesiologists, and other medical professionals are negligent when performing surgical procedures, misdiagnosing a patient, or allowing a patient to overdose of medication while under their care.

While monetary compensation cannot replace the loss of a loved one, holding negligent parties accountable and being financially secure in the untimely and unfortunate event of a wrongful death can help you and your family find closure.
