Portland Wrongful Death Lawyers
Delivering Compassionate Legal Representation and Seeking Justice
When someone dies due to another’s fault, certain steps can be taken to protect the victim’s surviving loved ones. The process begins with filing a wrongful death suit, the purpose of which is to pursue justice on their behalf and obtain compensation in accordance with the tragic loss. Our Portland wrongful death attorneys will treat your case with urgency and the utmost care at this trying time.
Our legal team want to advocate on your behalf and for the victim, because we realize there is nothing as devastating as losing a loved one to a preventable death. Those eligible for wrongful death benefits include immediate family members, spouses, domestic partners, financial dependents, and sometimes, even those who have no blood relation, but suffer financially because of the victim’s untimely death.
What Is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is an umbrella term that can be related to any number of personal injury claims, including but not limited to:
- Vehicle accidents caused by negligent drivers
- Medical malpractice, including prescription errors
- Fatal workplace accidents that could have been prevented
If you are eligible for wrongful death benefits, you can pursue compensation for any medical bills prior to your loved one’s death, loss of companionship, loss of wages, funeral/burial costs, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and so on. If the negligence was particularly egregious, you may be entitled to further compensation, called punitive damages, which serves to punish the perpetrator further.
