Wrongful Death


In all of our wrongful death cases, Attorney Schreiber takes an inordinate amount of time to get to know who that person who died was, what that person meant to the family (both financially and emotionally), what that person’s job was and what future prospects the person may have had, and what the person’s hobbies and other community activities were. As the families legal representatives, we try to get as full of a picture as possible of the person’s life because we have to persuasively present evidence as to the value of that life and what it meant to the living individuals left behind. The process is extremely emotional and difficult for the family, but we understand and try to make it a part of the healing process and not an additional burden. This has always been our cornerstone philosophy of Practice Made Personal.

We know that nothing could be more painful than the loss of a beloved family member Aside from the emotional support and companionship that may have been provided by a deceased loved one, there are many cases in which a family may have been financially dependent upon the individual.

While nothing can possibly make up for this kind of loss, financial compensation may be available for immediate family members in this situation to help pay for the costs of funeral expenses, medical care and other consequences in which a sudden death brings upon the loved ones of a terrible tragedy.

If you or someone you know has lost a loved one as a consequence of another party’s negligence, you should not have to bear the financial burdens. Contact Attorney Schreiber to speak about you or your family’s legal rights, the details of your situation and learn more about what we can do to help you.
