WRONGFUL DEATH LAWYERS
HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA

Losing a loved one is sudden, unexpected and emotionally devastating. The emotional anguish you and your family are suffering may be compounded by financial stress if you depended on your loved one’s income to make ends meet. Premature death is always difficult for a family, but when someone else caused the death, in addition to your emotional and financial pain, you must deal with anger and the sense of unfairness that you must suffer for someone else’s negligence.

What is a Wrongful Death?

Any death that comes too soon may seem “wrongful” to a grieving family and friends; but the term “wrongful death” has a particular meaning in law: the loss of a human life as a result of another’s negligent or deliberately wrongful act.

A wrongful death lawsuit is aimed at holding the responsible party liable for a loss of life that could have been prevented. It might be a drunk or distracted driver, a property owner who created or allowed a hazard to exist, a childcare worker who left a child to die in an overheated vehicle, the manufacturer of a dangerous drug or product, or a doctor who ignored the signs of a life-threatening disease—or any individual, company, or other entity whose act or failure to act appropriately led to the person’s death is accidents such as these:
