Wrongful Death Attorney in Wilmington
Losing a loved one is one of the worst things that could happen to you. It's even worse when you discover that the loss could have been avoided. What this means is that the only reason your loved one is not with you right now is because they – or you – trusted the wrong people with their safety.
If that's what you are dealing with, we're here to offer a shoulder to lean on and the legal advice (and possible representation) you need to hold the at-fault party accountable. To get started, please fill out our free case evaluation form. A Wilmington wrongful death lawyer from our team might be able to represent you in the first for the compensation you deserve.

Morgan & Morgan
What Is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death refers to a legal claim that occurs when someone dies due to the negligence or intentional actions of another party. This negligence may manifest in car accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, defective products, and intentional acts like assault.
Who Can Be Held Liable for Wrongful Death?
Each wrongful death case is unique. For this reason, establishing the party liable for wrongful death depends on the specific circumstances of the case. It could be an individual, a business, a medical professional, or another entity responsible for your loved one's death.
What Damages Can I Claim If I Lost a Loved One Due to Wrongful Death?
Damages in a wrongful death case may include medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of financial support, emotional distress, and so on. Again, since each case is unique, the damages you could recover will also depend on the specifics of your loved one's case.
How Can I Prove a Wrongful Death Case?
Proving wrongful death involves establishing the following:
- The defendant owed your loved one a duty of care
- The defendant's negligence or intentional misconduct
- The link between their actions and the death of a loved one
- The resulting damages
Proving these four elements may seem pretty straightforward on paper, but they are not in real life. That's why you need someone with experience handling these cases to fight for you.
What Is the Value of My Wrongful Death Case?
When calculating the value of a wrongful death case, we usually look at different factors, such as the circumstances of the death, the economic and non-economic losses incurred, and the emotional impact on the survivors.
Is Hiring an Attorney Expensive?
Not if you hire one from Morgan and Morgan. Here, we'll never ask you for any upfront payment. Instead, we only get paid if we win and obtain a verdict or settlement.
