Wrongful Death

I Provided Aggressive and Dedicated 24/7 Representation for Families, and Seek the Full Measure of Compensation to Which They Are Entitled

The loss of a loved one can be devastating, especially when caused by carelessness or the deliberately reckless actions of others.  Families and loved ones are torn apart with no warning.  If the death is to a parent and there are young children involved, there are often immediate and substantial financial ramifications in addition to the emotional loss.

As an attorney with more than 20 years of representing the injured, I help in seeking full and fair compensation for those who have lost a loved one due to the negligence of others. I provide compassion and a vigorous representation to clients during this very difficult time in their lives, and seek to hold accountable all those who have had any role in the wrongful death.

What You Should Know About My Firm and How I Represent Clients

When clients hire my firm, they hire me.  I’m available at your convenience – 24/7 – to talk to you and answer any questions that you may have about your case and your loss.

I don’t delegate client matters to other attorneys or paralegals.  I will personally handle every aspect of your case.  My approach is somewhat different than that used by many other firms, in which much of the client work is done by junior attorneys and paralegals.  I’ll be there with you at every step of your case.

I accept only a limited number of cases.  My approach is to seek to obtain full and complete compensation for each and every client.  I believe the only way that this can achieved is through meticulous case development and vigorous client representation.

What You Should Know About the Wrongful Death Litigation Process in Massachusetts

Wrongful death cases often involve considerable economic damages, as well as damages for emotional and other loss.  In many wrongful death cases – such as those resulting from vehicle crashes or a defective product – the defense of the case will often be controlled by the insurance company of the defendant.

Unfortunately these insurance companies do not care about treating the loved ones of the victim fairly.  Instead, their primary motivation is to avoid or minimize damages.  Toward this end, they frequently engage in whatever tactics they can to protect their financial interests, which can include prolonging litigation, blaming others (including the victim), and engaging in all types of legal maneuvers in an attempt to gain the upper hand.

Regardless of how clear liability may seem, insurance companies almost never offer full compensation near the outset of a case.  Instead, when the financial breadwinner for a family has been killed, insurance companies know that the longer a family goes without income, the more likely it is that they will experience financial distress.  As a result, they sometimes want to drag out litigation so that a family will be more likely to accept a low settlement.  I fight these tactics vigorously.

In wrongful death litigation, it is only when defendants and insurance companies realize that their defenses are unlikely to succeed and that they are likely to lose at trial will they usually begin settlement discussions for fair compensation.
