Coping with the loss of a loved one is difficult. This is especially true if your family member or loved one’s death was the result of negligence or carelessness on the part of another person or entity. At Sheff Law, our team of wrongful death lawyers in Boston, MA, understands the impact that the loss of a family member can have on loved ones, and works tirelessly to protect the futures of each wrongful death victim’s family.
Sheff Law works with victims’ families to navigate what is a confusing and difficult time. While no amount of financial recovery can or will ease the pain of losing a loved one, seeking compensation can ensure that the wrongful death of a family member doesn’t lead to additional economic hardship down the line.
The damages recovered from wrongful death cases can include loss of income, loss of future earnings, compensation for the victim’s medical expenses, burial costs and other economic factors. Additionally, compensation can also be provided for loss of companionships, happiness and emotional pain and suffering. In cases where the actions of the defendant are especially reckless or negligent, punitive damages may also be sought.
Some of the most common causes of wrongful death claims include:
- Automobile accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Premises liability
- Workplace accidents
- Products liability
- Slip and fall accidents
- Defective drugs
