Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is a devastating event. If a family member dies because of the careless, reckless, or negligent actions of others, or because of medical error, you may be entitled to compensation for their death. Family members and loved ones may be entitled to compensation for loss of financial support, losses sustained by the surviving spouse, or the loss of guidance and care for the decedent’s children. In a separate action, the decedent’s estate may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering the decedent endured prior to their death. The sincerely compassionate attorneys at O’Hare Parnagian LLP have years of experience representing families who have experienced such loss, and have the unique ability to provide both sensitivity and skilful advocacy to their clients.
