Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is defined as the loss of life wrongfully caused by another individual.

The unexpected loss of a child, parent, spouse, or family member is the darkest and most painful experience one can have, deeply affecting the lives of those left behind.

While a wrongful death lawsuit will never be able to replace the life that was lost, it can help ease the financial burden of funeral arrangements and medical bills, the loss of income and support, and make it a little easier to begin moving forward in life. The accidental death lawyers at Laura Butkute, Esq are compassionate and sharp and will handle your lawsuit with the dignity and respect it deserves.

Who can bring a law suit?

Only heirs or dependents of the deceased person can bring suit.

What kind of recovery are you entitled to?

If a wrongful death has occurred to a loved one, you could be entitled to the following:

     • Compensation for your pain and suffering
     • Compensation for your loss of companionship
     • Reimbursement for burial and funeral expenses
     • Recovery of your present and future financial losses
     • Reimbursement or payments of any medical expenses incurred
     • Reimbursement for your out of pocket expenses incurred
     • Recovery of the loss of earnings of the decedent

How much can you recover?
