Wrongful Death

Extraordinary loss calls for extraordinary care

Shefren Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O. stands ready to support the family of a loved one who has died due to the negligence or actions of others. We offer compassionate assistance while providing strong representation in legal action against the responsible parties.

When an accident or injury turns fatal, the lives of the survivors are changed forever. The loved one is suddenly gone, and left behind are family members coping with the loss of a parent, spouse, child or sibling. A wrongful death claim seeks compensation for medical and funeral expenses, as well as any lost income. In addition, it necessitates that a concrete value be put on the decedent’s priceless contribution to the family and their loss of companionship.

Your path is difficult. Let us guide you.

Wrongful death occurs when an individual loses their life because of the negligence, misconduct, recklessness, or inaction of another person, company, or entity.  The claim is brought in a civil action, usually by the executor or administrator of the decedent’s estate or a relative acting as an administrator.  Successful and significant recovery requires strong legal support.  The unexpected death of a loved one is a devastating event that can never be erased with monetary compensation.  However, an action for wrongful death may be necessary to ease the financial burdens placed on your family.  At Shefren Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O., we have experience working with families who have had to deal with the painful experience of losing a loved one.  We listen to your concerns, determine your options, and if necessary, take the appropriate legal action.
