Wrongful Death Cases

What is wrongful death?

Wrongful death cases are creatures of Indiana statutes. In general, they can be described as legal actions that a decedent’s estate may bring for the benefit of dependents, or other qualified individual to recover compensation for the death of their loved one because of someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions.

If you have experienced the sudden loss of a loved one, please accept our condolences. You likely have many questions, concerns, and emotional stress at this time. No one expects to be in this unfortunate circumstance.

Wrongful death claims are challenging and complex cases. They require legal expertise, compassion, and sensitivity from attorneys as they work with claimants who are often surviving family members experiencing the tremendous grief that comes with losing a loved one.

If you have lost a family member in an accident, abuse, or neglect situation, you need to speak with an attorney who can compassionately and objectively evaluate the facts of your case and help you decide whether to file a wrongful death claim.

Wrongful death claims include death by:

  • Automobile accidents, including DUI incidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Drownings
  • Accidental electrocution
  • Elder abuse and neglect
  • Nursing home neglect or abuse
  • Child abuse and neglect
  • Assault and battery
  • Medical malpractice
  • Death caused by a defective product
