  • What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

    Under Michigan law, the surviving loved ones of a person who passed away due to the wrongful act, neglect, or fault of another can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. These lawsuits are intended to provide compensation to the family of the deceased for their loss of financial and emotional support.

  • What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Deaths?

    In essence, wrongful death lawsuits are personal injury claims in which the victim can’t file on their own behalf. Therefore, the causes of wrongful deaths are often similar to those for personal injuries.

    One common example is car accidents, which can be caused by:

    • Distracted driving
    • Drunk driving
    • Speeding
    • Failure to yield
    • Failure to maintain the vehicle

    Medical malpractice is another frequent cause of wrongful death. In fact, medical errors are one of the leading causes of death in the United States overall. A medical professional might:

    • Make a surgical error
    • Misdiagnose a patient
    • Administer the wrong drug or dosage
    • Fail to order standard tests

    Wrongful death cases can also stem from defective products, dangerous drugs, and virtually any other type of personal injury case.

  • What Damages Are Available In Wrongful Death Cases?

    No two wrongful death cases are identical. However, your attorney will likely pursue some or all of the following types of damages:

    • Funeral and burial costs
    • Medical expenses
    • Lost wages and benefits
    • Loss of companionship and care
    • Pain and suffering
    • Punitive damages (intended to punish a grossly negligent defendant)
  • Contact Our Southfield Office

    Although no amount of money can bring back a lost loved one, financial compensation can help provide much-needed stability in the aftermath of a tragedy. Our attorneys are dedicated to getting the best results for every client, and doing so in a compassionate and caring manner. We understand you’re going through an incredibly difficult time, and we’re here for you every step of the way.
