Aggressive Advocacy When Tragedy Strikes

Every day, accidents caused by another party's negligence result in the unforeseeable death of someone's parent, child or sibling. This is one kind of injury that never quite heals. Nevertheless, the law allows surviving family members to sue for financial compensation.

Every year, the law firm of O'Malley Tunstall PLLC files suit for damages in the wrongful death of loved ones. There is no replacing a beloved breadwinner, caregiver or child.

But besides paying for medical bills, funeral expenses, and loss of income and companionship, these lawsuits send a message that negligent acts are not to be tolerated. Many families tell us that winning a wrongful death suit helped them put closure on their grieving, and allowed them to get on with their lives.

Compensation For Every Kind Of Fatal Accident

Our lawyers have won compensation for surviving family members in wrong death cases involving:

  • Slip-and-fall injuries
  • Car crashes
  • Accidents involving defective products or parts
  • Deadly and defective drugs and recalled medical devices
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Other workplace accidents

There are situations in which the behavior of the responsible party is so egregious that we seek punitive damages on top of the usual compensation. Examples of such behavior include driving drunk, reckless driving and willful indifference toward the safety of others.
