Niagara Falls Attorneys Handling Fatal Accident Claims

Wrongful death claims are also known as survivor claims. They are claims by those family members who were financially dependent upon or reliant upon the deceased person for guidance. These claims allow you to make sure that the loved ones of the victim are properly cared for. Although financial compensation can never bring a loved one back, it can provide a measure of justice and help a family when their loved one is no longer there to provide and guide them.

Situations that commonly result in wrongful death claims include:

  • Car accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Nursing home negligence

These cases are extremely complicated, because extensive evidence and medical documentation are needed to prove that a death was wrongful. Because of this, it is vital to have an accomplished lawyer on your side in order to achieve a successful result in these types of injury cases.
