Contact my office today for a free consultation and to learn of your options in the legal system regarding a wrongful death.
Wrongful death is a cause of action, or type of claim, that can be brought when one person or entity wrongfully causes someone's death. It allows a lawsuit to be filed even though the person who was harmed is no longer alive to bring the case.
Any fatality caused by the wrongful acts of another may result in a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death claims are often based upon death resulting from negligence, for example following a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver, a dangerous roadway or medical malpractice.
The right to bring a wrongful death claim is statutory. Under Arizona law, only parents, children (including adopted children) and spouses have the right to bring a wrongful death case.
If you or someone you know has experienced the pain of a wrongful death of a loved one, call to schedule your free consultation today.
