Negligence has been defined as the failure of an individual to act reasonably and prudently. For your claim to be established, it must be proven that the liable individual had a duty to care for the deceased individual in some way. Our lead lawyer Michael D.

We have extensive experience handling negligent death cases, including cases of reckless and negligent supervision of children, elderly, and inmates in jail. Whatever the details of your case, we can tirelessly work to build a strong claim on your behalf.

How is negligent death compensation determined?

When determining the amount to be awarded to you for compensatory damages, the court will take numerous factors into consideration, including:

  • Your relationship with the deceased
  • Deceased net income available to the surviving relatives
  • Loss of earnings and services due to death of your loved one
  • Expected lifespan of surviving parties

When the grossly negligent or reckless actions of an individual result in wrongful death, a court may choose to impose punitive damages. These damages aim to punish the negligent party and discourage others from behaving similarly in the future.
