Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims present issues and damages that can generate significant exposure.  Initial evidence must be properly retained, and all issues to oppose liability must be thoroughly developed.  Investigation of each aspect of liability and damages is critical to properly evaluate and determine how best to defend against this type of claim.
