Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims are different

Martineau King PLLC defends wrongful death cases whether caused by trucking accidents, automobile accidents, professional malpractice or products liability. Our attorneys start with a comprehensive understanding of the unique issues raised in a wrongful death case, including:

  • Cause and time of death analysis
  • Pre-death pain and suffering
  • Proximate cause
  • Calculating accurate net income
  • Valuation of household services
  • Establishing reasonable life and work expectancies
  • Present value calculations
  • Aggravating factors/punitive damages
  • Use of focus groups

Wrongful death cases are complex and emotionally difficult for everyone involved. Our attorneys recognize that the monetary value of a wrongful death case is often tied to the strength of the plaintiff’s relationship with the decedent. Any attack on the value of this relationship must be done with credibility, precision and skill. The successful defense of these cases requires an attorney who can artfully convince a jury to set aside sympathy and rule on the facts. Our attorneys handle wrongful death cases with unerring passion, skill and a true sense of caring for the client.
