Wrongful Death Lawyers at Mestemaker & Straub
A wrongful death occurs when a life is lost as the result of negligence. Negligence comes in many forms but it is generally the result of a failure to act reasonably under the circumstances. What is reasonable under the circumstances is determined by looking at the unique set of facts or circumstances surrounding an incident.
The death of a loved one is never easy. While dealing with the death of a loved one is always painful, it can be especially traumatic when the death was caused by another person’s actions or negligence, also known as a “wrongful death.”
