Tragedy may strike as a result of medical malpractice, a workplace injury, a catastrophic traffic accident, or numerous other circumstances.  Every wrongful death case is unique.  We are here to fight for the compensation that you deserve.

You and your family may be entitled to compensation for the injury sustained by your family member.  We represent spouses, children, parents and other dependents in cases where the intentional, careless, or reckless acts of another person have caused a family tragedy.  Surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for their economic and emotional injuries in some circumstances.   A wrongful death claim brought via a lawsuit in the judicial system is the appropriate means to seek compensation for your family’s loss. As a result of the tragedy, we understand that you may have a variety of financial concerns.  You may incur a variety of expenses as a result of your family member’s death, from medical bills to funeral expenses.  You may also be suffering from the lost wages of your family member.  We represent all wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis – there is no attorney fee unless you recover. Unfortunately, we cannot bring your family member back.  But we can fight to get you the compensation that you and your family deserve.  To speak to a McEldrew Young attorney about our experience in wrongful death cases, as well as get a free initial case evaluation, call 1-800-590-4116.
