Wrongful Death

Mr. Morrison handles wrongful death cases that arise, both from automobile accidents and from other wrongful acts. In a wrongful death case you must prove negligence, i.e. that the driver of the car or owner of the property did something to cause the death of the person. In a wrongful death case, the family of the deceased person are entitled to reasonable funeral expenses, the amount of income that the deceased would have earned over the course of his lifetime and the medical bills that the deceased incurred before he or she died, as well as mental anguish from the loss of companionship from the deceased.

These losses can sometimes be hard to document, it is therefore essential for the person that is bringing a wrongful death action on behalf of a loved one to begin early to document the damages in the case. We can help at the beginning of a wrongful death case by ensuring that the information is gathered as soon as it becomes available in order to fully preserve the case.
