Helping Your Family Move Forward
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 50,000 people in the U.S. die every year from injuries caused by violent crimes. Homicide is the second leading cause of death for people between ages 15 and 24 and is the third leading cause of death for people between ages 1-4 and 25-34.
These statistics reveal a disturbing trend of violence. While the individual offenders are certainly responsible for their actions, there are often third parties involved who may have prevented the crime if they had not been negligent. Depending on the details of the case, there may be multiple liable parties such as employers and property owners.
Families that lose loved ones to wrongful death may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Funeral expenses
- Income the deceased would have earned
- Compensation for the personal loss of a loved one
We know how to calculate the full value of your family’s losses and fight for the amount of compensation you need.
