Losing a loved one in an avoidable and preventable accident or incident is an unacceptable circumstance for any family to endure. At Dean Burnetti Law, we aggressively fight on behalf of the grieving family to ensure the at fault party is held accountable through the civil litigation process. We will ensure your loved one's voice is heard while we diligently fight to ensure the victim and his or her family is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
A wrongful death may occur due to a variety of reasons such as an automobile or other type of motor vehicle related accident, a result of an individual drinking and driving, slip and fall accidents, dog bite or animal attacks, medical errors, defective or dangerous products, unsafe or tainted food, unsafe prescription drugs or other controlled substances, or a host of other situations that cause catastrophic injuries.
If a wrongful death occurs involving criminal actions, it is important to note that the accused does not have to be found guilty in order to bring civil litigation against the at fault party. Many times individuals that are found not guilty of a wrongful death in a criminal case are found to be liable for the wrongful death in a civil litigation liability case.
