Wrongful Death

Among the most sensitive and complex cases to handle are those cases involving wrongful death. Dealing with a family's grief and loss is a challenge for the most experienced trial lawyer. Steve Walsh has successfully handled wrongful death cases arising from numerous causes such as drunk driving accidents and medical malpractice. Each case must be handled with the utmost sensitivity to the needs and desires of the surviving family members. While no amount of compensation can ever replace a loved one, the successful prosecution of a wrongful death case can help fulfill the dreams of the deceased for his or her spouse and children.

In a wrongful death action, you are entitled to recover the expenses for medical care and treatment of the deceased's last injury or illness, as well as the funeral expenses. In addition, the loss of the deceased's anticipated future earnings until retirement, as well as any pension benefits, may be claimed. The deceased's conscious pain, suffering and anguish are all matters which are difficult to calculate but are part of the damages in a wrongful death action. Finally, the loss of care, companionship and guidance that a child or spouse suffers as a result of a loved one's death are major elements to be considered in every wrongful death case.

If you or a close friend has suffered the loss of a loved one as a result of another's negligence, Walsh Law Firm will consult with you and explain how they will pursue full compensation for the survivors of this by "re-creating" the life of the deceased so that a jury understands the full impact of this tragic loss.
