Helping You Recover Compensation After Loss

When a loved one dies due to the negligent or reckless acts of a third party, often time those left behind are too busy coping with the aftermath to think clearly about possible compensation. This is why it is so important to let a wrongful death attorney act on your behalf to make sure any valid claim is given the due consideration it deserves.

Can You Claim?

Wrongful death laws differ from state to state, but the basic premise is that the deceased person lost their life due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness and that the family members of the deceased have been directly impacted—emotionally and financially—by their death. 

Common grounds for wrongful death lawsuits include accidental death caused by an automobile accident, an unlawful act committed during the commission of a crime, a work-related death or death due to medical malpractice.

“When a motorist with minimum coverage hit me, I wasn't sure how to proceed with my insurance claim. Several people told me to pursue a personal injury lawyer, but since the accident was caused by the other driver, I felt the insurance companies would do the right thing. Nothing could be further from the truth. During the months following the accident, I tried to navigate and maneuver through the mounds of insurance bureaucrats with no resolutions. Nothing was happening. Bills were not getting paid, phone calls not being returned, in short, I was getting nowhere.

Finally, I was referred to Daniel Earnshaw and his team by a friend who said Mr. Earnshaw was highly thought of in the field. From my first conversation with Dan, it was apparent that he was the right counsel for me. He went over every aspect of the case. His knowledge of personal injury/auto accident and insurance law was astounding. Throughout the entire process, Daniel was up front and let me know what was going on, what information he needed, and when I could expect progress reports. He communicated regularly, with updates by phone, letters and e-mails. The end result was more than I could have hoped for. While I would prefer never to be in that type of situation again, there is no question that if I am, I would retain Dan again in a heartbeat.”
