Wrongful Death

Taunton, Massachusetts, Wrongful Death Attorneys

A wrongful death case can arise out of a fatal motor vehicle accident, slip and fall accident, construction accident, or any other type of accident cause. If you have lost a family member due to the negligence of another party in any type of accident, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights to compensation. Massachusetts has specific statutes that govern who is eligible to collect money in a wrongful death claim. During your free consultation, our lawyers will explain whether you are entitled to file a claim.

Our job as lawyers is twofold:

  • To determine if there was negligence on the part of someone else in causing your family member’s death
  • To determine whether insurance coverage is available to compensate you

In wrongful death cases, there often is inadequate insurance to compensate family members of the victim. Our lawyers are experienced in searching out the maximum amount of coverage to pay for your loss. Sometimes this means “stacking” insurance coverage from two or more different policies.

For example, our lawyers recently handled a wrongful death case involving a single-car accident. Our client was killed in the accident and the other person in the vehicle was critically injured and went into a coma. The insurance company raised questions about who was driving the car: our client or the other party. By interviewing witnesses, our lawyers were able to prove that our client was a passenger in the vehicle. This finding allowed us to make a claim against the driver’s insurance company as well as our client’s insurance company.
