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.

“I was involved in a most serious accident, where I had to be pulled from a burning vehicle. I was shocked when Mr. Earnshaw got the police report which indicated the accident was my fault. Mr. Earnshaw believed me, consulted with a crash expert and demanded that the police conduct a second investigation.

As a result, the policeman admitted he had made mistakes in the report and a new report was issued. He then went on to file suit when the insurance company wouldn’t settle, go through the litigation process and obtain a great settlement before the trial date. I would recommend Mr. Earnshaw to anyone who is involved in an accident or Worker’s Compensation case.”
