Wrongful Death Actions

Experience You Can Count On

If an individual loses his or her life due to the negligent act of another, the victim’s family has a right to file a wrongful death claim. More often than not, these claims arise due to a personal injury sustained due to medical malpractice, automobile accidents, a fall, work related accidents, or a variety of other torts.

After an untimely death occurs, an estate is created and the personal representative of the decedent’s estate or a surviving spouse, child, or other dependent family member will file a wrongful death lawsuit against the tortfeasor in order to recover compensation on behalf of the decedent’s estate.

It is imperative that the decedent’s estate and surviving family members seek legal representation as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of Philip Russell, LLC, we understand the complex nature of a wrongful death action. We will move quickly to pursue the appropriate recovery on behalf of the heirs of the decedent’s estate.
