Wrongful Death Lawsuits in WV

Financial Compensation for the Deceased’s Estate & Justice for Loved Ones

The Law Firm You Can Trust

Wrongful death claims/lawsuits are oftentimes the sole source of financial security for surviving family members and dependents of those who are deceased as a result of the negligence, default, or intentional wrongdoing of a person or entity. If the deceased would have had sufficient grounds to recover damages on behalf of himself if he had not died, the responsible party is likely liable to provide compensation for his death and accompanying expenses. Nothing can bring your loved one back to you. However, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit to collect financial compensation from the party responsible for the death. Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law helps families throughout all of West Virginia pursue justice for all types of wrongful death lawsuits, including:

Catastrophic Injuries Resulting in Death
Product Liability-Related Fatalities

What is a Wrongful Death Claim or Lawsuit?

If you are the personal representative of the deceased, our law firm can assist you with filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Claims may be filed for deaths that have resulted from any underlying wrong for which an individual, manufacturer, or other wrongdoer has committed, including property defects, accidents, intentional acts, medication errors, negligence, and other catastrophic events, which have resulted in death. Following a successful claim, financial compensation will be distributed to the surviving spouse, children, siblings, and others who were dependent on the support of the deceased. Wrongful death claims can include damages for the expenses incurred for medical care, hospitalization, treatment, funeral expenses, sorrow, mental anguish, and loss of income, society, comfort, guidance, companionship, protection, assistance, and care. There is a two year statute of limitations to file your claim.
