If You Lost Your Loved One In An Accident, Get Legal Help
When your loved one accepted an industrial job, you knew that he or she faced a higher risk of occupational hazards. However, you never expected that you would lose them in a workplace accident.

What Constitutes Wrongful Death?
Many people have heard the term “wrongful death” but do not know its legal definition. You never had to apply the term to your own life until the terrible day of your loved one’s accident. Wrongful death is when someone dies due, in full or in part, to someone else’s negligence.
Several conditions must be present for a wrongful death lawsuit:
- One or more deaths
- Surviving relatives who have suffered financial losses due to the death
- An attorney or representative for the victim’s estate
The attorneys at Walters & Zinn, Attorneys at Law can evaluate your case to determine whether you have a wrongful death case. Then, we can help you determine the legal steps you wish to take.
