When a person dies as a result of the negligence of another, such cases are called wrongful death claims. Under Massachusetts law, recovery against a liable party is based on the loss of a loved one to certain identified family members and the estate. Under most circumstances, a wrongful death claim may involve any sort of accident in which the defendant negligently or recklessly caused death. A complex Massachusetts statute governs wrongful death cases. Our attorneys focus their attention on proving liability in these serious matters and prepare the crucial evidence concerning the loss to survivors.
