Advocacy in Connection with Severe Injury & Death
Severe injury and death can occur due to many different circumstances arising from the intentional or negligent acts of others. These injuries can be due to the wrongful conduct of a professional, because of a dangerous drug or medical device, or from a collision with a distracted driver, to name just a few. There are often expensive medical bills, severe pain and suffering and extended times required for recuperation, resulting in both the loss of enjoyment of life as well as economic damages from lost time at work. Victims of wrongful activity are due compensation for their expenses, as well as for their suffering. In certain cases, these victims are also entitled to punitive damages, in order to punish the wrongdoer and teach him or her a lesson that the behavior cannot be tolerated in the future.
Sadly, many severe injury cases result in death. In a wrongful death case, the heirs of the deceased victim are entitled to damages measured by the value of the life – both economic and non-economic -- of the deceased person, had he or she survived.
