Compensation For The Loss Of A Loved One

Our Brighton wrongful death attorneys have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of grieving families in Livingston County and Southeast Michigan. We can pursue claims for preventable deaths resulting from:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Pedestrian or bicycle accidents
  • Workplace hazards or dangerous property
  • Defective products or machinery

Our skilled trial lawyers identify the negligence that directly or indirectly killed your loved one. If we cannot obtain a fair settlement through negotiations, we are prepared to present our detailed case to a jury.

A wrongful death lawsuit compensates the surviving family members for their tangible losses, such as loss of household income, medical and funeral expenses, loss of consortium and companionship, and loss of household services and contributions to family life. Additional damages may apply if the victim endured conscious pain and suffering prior to death.

Full And Fair Damages For Wrongful Death

We recently resolved a wrongful death and personal injury case in which a gravel truck ran a stop sign, injuring a passenger car driver and killing her daughter. We sent our investigator to the crash scene and later assembled a powerful video of the devastated family. Our thorough efforts resulted in a $1.75 million settlement.
