OUR EXPERIENCE IN WRONGFUL DEATH CASES ENSURES THE MAXIMUM SETTLEMENT FOR OUR CLIENTS.
We Fight for Justice So You Can Have Peace
A wrongful death claim is a suit that arises from the death of an individual that was caused by the conduct of another. A wrongful death suit is different from other types of personal injury claims because the actual victim (the “decedent”) is not bringing suit, rather it is the family members or the decedent’s estate. As such, a wrongful death claim is brought to recover damages for the injuries that the surviving family and/or estate have suffered due to the death of the victim. At Hoffman & Gelfman Attorneys, P.C., we understand that no amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, we help our clients achieve financial security so they can focus on recovering from their loss.
