Boston Wrongful Death Attorneys
Massachusetts Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Every year, thousands of families across the country lose a loved one due to negligent acts of individuals or companies. It may be the loss of life from a drunk driver’s recklessness, or a product that results in the wrongful death of a child, parent or spouse.
When someone loses a loved one due to the fault of another, the surviving person may bring a Massachusetts wrongful death claim against the person responsible for their loved one’s death. The lawsuit may be to recover medical expenses, lost wages, final expenses and other costs that arise from fatal accidents.
Unlike criminal charges that might be filed by the government against the negligent person responsible for your family member’s passing, a wrongful death lawsuit is filed by an attorney in a civil court to recover money damages for your loss.
It is often easier to seek retribution in civil court because there is a different, less stringent, standard of proof required from a criminal prosecution. In Massachusetts, under the Wrongful Death Statute, a wrongdoer may be held responsible for punitive damages if the person or company’s conduct was willful and wanton or constitutes Gross Negligence.
Many times, families might not even realize that someone else’s negligence led to a loved one’s accident, and ultimate death. The deceased is no longer present to tell their side of the story and details surrounding their death may go unnoticed unless families ask the right questions.
