Wrongful Death
When a loved one dies due to the fault or misconduct of another, the surviving family members may sue for "wrongful death and survival". Dunaway Law Office handles these types of cases everyday. Call us now for a Free Consultation!
Wrongful death and survival claims are brought against the person/defendant who has caused someone's death, either negligently or through intentional harm. These civil suits allow the Estate of the deceased person to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party who is legally liable for the death.

A wrongful death claim is applicable when a victim who would otherwise have a personal injury claim is killed as a result of either the negligence or intentional harmful act on the part of the defendant. The lawsuit is usually brought by the Personal Representative of the estate, on behalf of the surviving family members and other affected parties.

Any type of fatal accident caused by the negligence of another person can result in a wrongful death claim. These types of accidents include auto accidents caused by another driver, dangerous roadways or defective vehicles, nursing home abuse and neglect, excessive force by law enforcement, etc. Persons, companies, and even governmental agencies can be legally liable for acting negligently (failing to act as a reasonable person would have acted under the same or similar circumstances) and for acting intentionally.

Lawsuits filed for wrongful death can be brought against a wide variety of potential defendants. For example, in a fatal car accident involving a faulty roadway or a drunk driver, a wrongful death action might include defendants such as:
- the driver or employer of the person at-fault in the automobile accident;
- the designer or builder of the faulty roadway;
- a government agent who failed to provide adequate warnings regarding a road hazard that caused or contributed to the accident;
- the manufacturer, distributor, or installer of the faulty or dangerous part on the vehicle;
- the persons who sold, served, or gave alcohol and/or drugs to the impaired drunk driver, or;
- the owner of the premises/property where the alcohol was served.

Damages in a wrongful death suit can include pecuniary or financial loss and injury. Pecuniary loss includes the loss of support and services, the lost prospect of inheritance, and the medical and funeral expenses. In determining pecuniary loss, it is relevant to consider the age, character, and condition of the deceased person as well as his/her earning capacity, life expectancy, health and intelligence, as well as the circumstance and financial hardship incurred by the heirs and remaining family members.

At Dunaway Law Office we have successfully handled many many of the these types of cases and we are equipped with the legal resources and experience to attain the results you need and deserve. We have excellent working relationships with the necessary experts and investigators needed to prove your case and recover your damages. Let us help you in your time of need.
