Wrongful Death Claims Are Complex, But You Can Recover
At McDonald & MacGregor, LLC (M&M Law), we fully realize that financial compensation will not heal everything that is damaged by the tragic loss of a loved one who was killed in an accident. However, financial compensation and our compassionate legal work can help you and other family members cope with loss and the associated costs, including:
- Medical costs
- Funeral expenses
- Lost earnings and earning capacity of the decedent
- Loss of companionship and financial support (loss of consortium)
- Loss of parental nurturing, guidance and education
- Infliction of emotional distress
If we take on your case, we will work diligently to prove that the negligent or reckless actions of another person or entity were the cause of your loved one’s death. We will establish and pursue the full and fair compensation deserved for survivors’ benefits and estate benefits.
