Wrongful Death

Compassionate, Skilled Legal Counsel After A Tragedy

Losing a loved one is always devastating. Learning that your loved one could still be alive if a third party had acted responsibly is never easy and may cause you additional pain and heartache. Wrongful death is simply defined as loss of life that could have been prevented if another person had acted differently.

At Morris Margulies, we know that wrongful death lawsuits are not a way of replacing loved ones; there is no amount of money that could ever replace a person you love. However, when you are burdened with those additional medical expenses as a result of hospitalization prior to death, find yourself with unexpected funeral and burial costs and lose the love, companionship and income of your loved one, you have the right to seek financial compensation from the responsible party.

Defending Your Right To Compensation After An Accident

Our attorneys have substantial experience with catastrophic personal injury cases. They are qualified and ready to represent you with your wrongful death case and are prepared to challenge at-fault parties in and out of court.
