Wrongful Death Attorneys Salem

If you have suffered the death of a loved one through neglectful actions of another person or entity, you are dealing with the most painful circumstances anyone can face: a case of “wrongful death.” When a loved one needlessly looses their life the grief can be life-changing. Even though it may be difficult to think about pursuing legal measures, it is necessary to remember that your life will never be the same as a result of this death – you could soon be dealing with extreme life and financial burdens.

Legally, a “Wrongful Death” action can be described as an instance where the negligent or reckless behavior and conduct of any entity or person leads to injuries that result in fatality, or immediate fatality.  Typically, a wrongful death begins as some type of personal injury and escalates:

  • Vehicle Accidents: serious injuries that lead to death, or instant death as a result of a moving vehicle
  • Premises Liability: serious physical injuries that result in death, or an immediate death that occurs on public or private properties
  • Product Liability: defective and/or dangerous products which, when used, cause serious physical injuries that result in death, or immediate death
