Wrongful Deaths

Losing your loved one is a tragic experience, and no family deserves the added pain of losing someone as a result of wrongful death or negligence. If you have to face a wrongful death case in the midst of your grief, let our Waitz & Downer team navigate you through the process to ease the burden of the legal responsibilities and proceedings that result.

Death can be considered wrongful in circumstances including (but not limited to):

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Aviation accidents
  • Job-related deaths

In these tragic cases, civil and criminal legal action can be taken against the business or individual(s) responsible for the wrongful loss of life.

Our Waitz & Downer team is at your side every step of the way to ensure you get the compensation you and your loved ones deserve in the face of tragedy and to defend the legal rights of family members that have been left behind.
