Wrongful Death Action Attorney
Wrongful Death Actions
A wrongful death case is brought under the Massachusetts Wrongful Death Statute on behalf of the survivors of an individual whose death was caused by the negligence or other wrongful conduct of person or entity. Individual surviving family members, such as the spouse, parents, or children, can bring their own claims for loss of consortium and loss of companionship caused by the death of their loved one. Such claims are essentially seeking compensation for the emotional loss suffered by surviving family members in terms of loss of protection, care assistance, society, companionship, guidance, counsel, and advice. The plaintiff can also recover for the loss of reasonably expected net income, medical expenses, funeral expenses, conscious pain and suffering, and punitive damages if gross negligence is proven. As one might expect, wrongful death cases involve numerous different types of facts and circumstances. Detailed investigations and expert testimony are often required to successfully prosecute these cases.
