Wrongful Death

Compassionate Representation for Grieving Families

When you lose someone in a senseless tragedy, it’s normal to feel a variety of emotions. In more than 30 years of representing individuals and families mourning the wrongful death of a loved one, attorney Ed Keane has witnessed his clients confront a host of complex emotions, including rage, profound grief, and depression. As they process these difficult feelings, they desperately need a firm shoulder to lean on. Ed has built a reputation for being a compassionate, trusted advocate for families grieving one of life’s greatest sorrows.

Although many people associate wrongful death with car crashes, any type of personal injury accident has the potential to cut a promising life short. Wrongful deaths are caused by:

  • Car Accidents
  • Drunk drivers
  • Construction accidents
  • Distracted drivers
  • Work-related accidents

If you have lost someone you love to another person’s negligence, you have important rights. Ed works one-on-one with individuals and families to identify actionable claims, pursue comprehensive compensation, and provide peace of mind.

Compensation for Wrongful Death

There is no question that money can’t replace a beloved family member. When you’re already grieving the loss of a loved one, however, dealing with unexpected funeral bills, medical costs, and loss of support is an additional burden. Families who lose someone due to another person’s carelessness shouldn’t have to suffer these financial blows. In many cases, it also helps families to know that the person or entity responsible for their loved one’s passing is being held financially accountable for the loss. This closure can provide a small measure of healing that is so important for the grieving process.

Complete Wrongful Death Representation

Wrongful death cases are unique among personal injury claims. Because the injured party has passed away and cannot file a claim for damages, his or her family members must open an estate to pursue a claim on the deceased’s behalf. Compensation can be recovered for any pain and suffering the injury victim suffered before death. This is often a critical factor in cases where an injured party suffered a long time before passing away. Other forms of compensation include:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of guidance, care, and financial support
  • Loss of accumulated earnings, what the decedent would have saved over his lifetime
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of companionship
