Support And Advocacy After The Devastation Of Wrongful Death

An untimely death not only causes a loss of life. It can have serious emotional and financial consequences on other members of the family. When a criminal, reckless or negligent action results in death, this is considered wrongful death.

Our wrongful death attorneys at Jeffrey M. Goldberg Law Offices help families collect damages for the loss of their loved ones. Money cannot make up for the loss of your loved one, but our mission is to help your family get compensated after a horrible loss. We strive to balance the scales of justice for you and your family.

Causes Of Wrongful Death Accidents

A wrongful death accident can happen because of medical malpractice or a preventable accident. They can be the result of medical errors, mistakes or even deliberate actions. Some occur in auto accidents and workplace accidents. Below is a snapshot of accidents leading to wrongful death:

  • Fatal workplace injuries: According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 4,600 people died because of fatal workplace injuries in 2011. There were more deaths for private businesses than for public employers.
  • Medical malpractice: Government investigators report that thousands of Americans die each year because of medical errors.
  • Auto accidents: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that an average of nine people are killed on the country's roads each day because of distracted driving alone.
