Wrongful death means simply that an innocent victim dies because of the negligence of someone else. Unfortunately, in this type of case, the victim’s family is also the victim and suffers a great deal.

Losing a loved one is a very difficult experience, especially if the death was causedby a preventable accident and was untimely. These preventable accidents may be due to defective or dangerous products, vehicle accidents, medical malpractice or many other types of negligence that may ultimately lead to wrongful death. If your loved one died due to a preventable accident caused by negligence or any other avoidable reason, he or she may have been a victim of a “wrongful death” and as family member of the victim, you have the right to hold the negligent person (or party) accountable for their negligent actions.

At Logan and Mencuccini, , we work to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation to which you and the estate are entitled.

The results of a particular case cannot be based upon a lawyer's or firm's past results. Each case is different. The value of a case can depend on a number of factors, such as: the facts concerning liability in the case, potential defenses asserted in the case, the harm both monetary and personal suffered by the injured person, the legal complexity of the case, whether the defendant was insured or not, the available insurance coverage in the case, and whether the case was resolved through negotiation, at trial, or in arbitration.
