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.

“My life was changed forever and turned upside down when I was struck on the head by a large board thrown out of a second story window by a negligent employee of a subcontractor on the site. It was shocking when my employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance company denied the claim! Dan told me not to worry as we waited for a hearing to be scheduled.

He was always confident and reassuring and when he explained things to me, he displayed an incredible knowledge of the Workers’ Compensation law. He was able to expose my employer’s attempt at trying to change the facts in order to deny me coverage that was rightfully mine. Sure enough, we won. I got all my back pay and am covered for life. Now, he is going after the insurance company for the subcontractor whose employee caused my devastating injuries. I can’t recommend Dan Earnshaw highly enough.”
