What qualifies as wrongful death?

A wrongful death occurs when a person’s death is caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party. This can include a wide range of circumstances, such as car accidents caused by drunk driving, medical malpractice, defective products, workplace accidents, or even criminal acts. In essence, any situation where the death could have been prevented if proper care had been taken constitutes a wrongful death.

Why choose experienced representation?

My case started off with Mr. Farrar and when he retired, Matt Hennesey took over. They fought for my case for over 4 years and Matt stuck with it. They were really good to me and still are.

Mr. Farrar is the best. He will guide you every step of the way! I was very pleased. Hopefully, I won't have to use him again, but if so, I most definitely will.

Mr. Matt Hennesy, I have to say, is one of the best lawyers you will ever have. Mr. Hennesy went above and beyond to make sure me and my wife were taken care of. I could never be grateful enough for what he did for us. And their office staff is just as caring. Thank you so much.
