Wrongful Death

Has Your Family Suffered From A Wrongful Death?

  • My daughter’s cancer was misdiagnosed, and she lost her battle with cancer.
  • A drunk driver killed my husband. I am a stay at home mom, what are we supposed to do?

  • The railing broke and my father was killed by the fall. His Will says I’m the executor/personal representative, what do I do?

Wrongful death cases can be brought by the decedent’s (deceased victim’s) spouse, parents and children (legal beneficiaries) AND the decedent’s estate.

Survival Action: The Estate of Decedent can bring a “survival action” for economic damages (such as funeral expenses) and non-economic damages (such as pain & suffering experienced prior to the death of the decedent). The Pinder Plotkin Legal Team handles estates and estate litigation. We can review your loved one’s Will to determine: who can act as personal representative of the estate to pursue a survival action on-behalf of the estate. If no Will exists, we can walk you through what that means for your case… in plain English, not legalese.

Beneficiary Action: The statutory beneficiary (ex. spouse, parents, children) can bring a claim for economic damages (such as financial support and replacement of value of services performed by decedent), and non-economic damages (such as mental anguish and emotional pain and suffering).

The survival and beneficiary actions can be brought at the same time.
