Wrongful death cases are brought on behalf of the deceased party by the decedent’s beneficiaries, one or more of whom are appointed as executor or administrator of the estate. Beneficiaries such as a spouse, parent or child, may be entitled to receive monetary compensation for the death of their loved one. The beneficiaries must allege that the death of their loved one was caused by the negligent act of another person or company. We understand that no wrongful death settlement or verdict can compensate for the loss of a family member but we, at Swartz & Swartz, P.C., will make sure your rights are protected, and provide you with the legal support you need during a difficult and emotional time.
