Bringing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

If you've lost a loved one in a wrongful death, an attorney at Metzger Wickersham can advocate for your rights. You may be entitled to compensation.

The following must be shown in order to bring a successful wrongful death lawsuit:

  • A person has died.
  • The person died as a result of someone's negligence.
  • The deceased is survived by immediate family members (for example, a spouse and children).
  • The surviving family members have suffered a monetary loss as a result of the victim's death.

Many of our wrongful death clients have lost loved ones in auto accidents, including those involving drunk drivers. When the incident takes place at a place of employment, such as an accident at a construction site, professional negligence may also play a role in the wrongful death suit. A fall from a defective product, such as a ladder, that results in a death may also be grounds for a lawsuit.

We understand how difficult it is to navigate filing a wrongful death suit after losing a loved one. However, it's important to keep in mind that delaying this action could affect your legal rights.
