Any accidental death is tragic. It can devastate a family, often leaving family members feeling paralyzed and unsure what to do next. It can also severely impact the family's financial resources. When the death was caused by another party's negligence or wrongdoing, it is even more distressing.
Wrongful death and car accident fatality cases are often complex, and can involve collecting a great deal of evidence necessary to build a strong case. Therefore, it is crucial to contact a skilled attorney as soon after the accident as possible.

How Can You Put A Value On Your Loss?
Obviously, you cannot put a price on the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident. However, there are very real financial and emotional costs to the death of a family member, and your family does not cheapen its loss by seeking compensation for those costs.
There are legal remedies available to hold people accountable for the injuries and losses caused by their negligent or intentional behavior. The attorneys of Bishop & Reidy, P.C., can seek compensation for your losses, such as lost wages and financial support, loss of consortium, and loss of companionship in a wrongful death suit against the at-fault party. We can also work with the insurance companies to make sure any claims are paid in full and on time to your loved one's estate.
In some circumstances, Massachusetts law allows bereaved families to seek punitive damages, which the party responsible for the wrongful death has to pay as a form of punishment. We will perform a thorough investigation and build a solid, detailed case for any appropriate punitive damages in addition to just compensation for your losses.
We have recovered more than $12 million in damages for our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims, including fatal car accidents, truck and motorcycle fatalities, and fatal accidents on construction sites or vacation destinations.
