Sometimes institutional negligence or someone’s individual carelessness can end in the wrongful death of innocent persons. These cases pose significant challenges, not just with regard to complex legal issues, but with regard to the uncertainties of the future, the grief of family and friends of the deceased, and the balancing of a wide array of clients’ interests.
Our Firm has handled dozens of wrongful death cases over the years, and has a great deal of experience in this area of complex litigation. Our close relationships with a number of certified mental health professionals allows not only for crucial access to mental health services, but helps to streamline communication between clients, therapists, and attorneys in a way that optimizes the value of therapeutic processes. We understand from experience that the ultimate goal of any legal action is for individuals to be healed and made whole, where possible, as much as possible, or if possible. Of course litigation cannot bring back a loved one, and all we can do is help marry accountability with therapeutic recovery into the concept of justice. In the particularly difficult circumstances of a wrongful death, an ethos stemming from this understanding can make a world of difference in any clients’ encounter with the civil legal system.
