Wrongful Death

LKC represents family members of individuals who have died unnecessarily because of negligence or recklessness of others.

The firm has successfully handled a number of wrongful death cases against the auto industry, big corporations, hospitals, and more.

The pain of losing someone we love sometimes seems just too much to bear, and when that life is lost due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the pain is only magnified. When someone dies due to someone else’s poor judgment or recklessness, the guilty party should be held accountable. If your loved one died due to the carelessness or misconduct of someone else, you may have a valid legal claim.

We understand that no amount of money will bring your loved one back, but the party responsible for the death must be held accountable, and in some cases, punitive damages should be assigned to prevent future similar bad acts. In simple terms, a “wrongful death” occurs when someone dies as the result of another’s reckless, negligent act.  Wrongful deaths may occur as a result of:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Occupational accidents
  • Defective products


Compensation may be awarded for:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical bills
  • Loss of past and future income
  • Loss of companionship for the spouse and children
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental Anguish
